Appi Kogen Ski Resort

Resort features

The slopes at Appi Kogen are on a grand scale, with a total of 21 courses covered in top-quality snow: making runs down the smooth and refreshing compacted snow slopes is an incredible sensation. Situated at 40 degrees latitude and boasting a truly superior snow quality, Appi Kogen is open all the way to early May - the rich environment and north-facing slopes means snow lasts longer. While the 5.5 kilometer downhill course from the summit is one even beginners can try out, there’s also an non-compacted snow course, approximately 2 kilometers in length, which is one long powder run on days when snow has fallen, and an exciting mogul course with one mogul after another on days without snowfall. Tree runs are also possible in the Nishimori Area and Sailer Area.
