Shiga Kogen Yakebitaiyama Ski Resort

Resort features

Yakebitaiyama Ski Resort has many woodland courses that take advantage of the natural terrain, and once you reach the 2,000-meter-high summit, you will be rewarded with a stunning 360-degree panorama. With lift tickets exclusive to Mt. Yakebitai, children elementary school age and under can enjoy free lifts all day! Equipped with two gondolas, a total of 16 courses offer a variety of layouts, from flat beginner courses to advanced courses used for international competitions. The Descente First Track event, where you can be the first to ski the slopes in the morning, is a big hit every year! After skiing, unwind at the adjoining hotel.
