Gala Yuzawa Snow Resort

Resort features

This ski resort, which has combined its station with its ski center, is super-convenient. Located approximately 95 minutes from the Tokyo metropolitan area, it boasts excellent ease of access, and if you want to be able to get in some skiing easily and at a reasonable rate, this is a great place to do it.

Since it’s a ski resort specializing in day trips, it has a full array of facilities such as rental shops, changing rooms, and restaurants. Once you’ve finished preparing to ski, it’s a straight shot on the large gondola lift on the second floor of the station to the slopes, which are at an elevation of 800 meters! With numerous courses full of variation, these slopes are sure to satisfy people of any level, beginner to advanced.

Inside the station there’s also a souvenir shop and a day trip onsen, providing plenty to look forward to after you’re done skiing. It’s a ski resort we particularly recommend to anyone who would like to go empty-handed but still be able to experience some serious skiing.
