Certified world record!

World's deepest powdery snow pack!

The Ibuki area's 11.82-meter snowfall has set a world record!
That means you can experience the very best powder—the kind of powder you wouldn't think possible in the southern-central region of Japan.

Finest powder snow!

Experience the quality and beautiful views that come with the finest powder snow!

Many of our trails, such as Bunabayashi and Kurinoki, are left as unpacked powder.We especially recommend catching the morning's first lift on days after it snows.

Maximum grade of 46 degrees!

The trail designed for Japan's top skiers: the New Challenge Trail!

While the New Challenge trail capitalizes on the untouched splendor of the surrounding natural landscape, what makes it so amazingly attractive? The experience of skiing down this insanely steep 46-degree slope—Japan's steepest. The slope faces north, limiting the amount of sun that reaches it, resulting in long-lasting, top-quality powder. Be sure to enjoy skiing through this exhilarating powder!

Snow land

Our tunnel-covered moving walkway is now fully operational! Enjoy safe and easy sledding. Kids can jump in the bounce house, make snowmen, build igloos—these slopes are also the perfect playground for children!

  • Hours of Operation 8:00-16:45
  • Usage fee: 1,000 yen May be applied to 1-day and afternoon lift tickets (no limit on the use of the tunnel-covered moving walkway)
  • Sled rental: Free of charge

A note from Snow Park Manager "Digger"

For this season, the park area is again being configured to make it easier for beginning and intermediate-level snowboarders to participate
It's also set up in a long and narrow layout allowing snowboarders to enjoy many features in a single run, making the snow park a fully satisfying experience for advanced users as well.
We also have more feature variations focusing mainly on kickers, boxes, and rails, and now that we have two snow machines in the park area vicinity, we aim to make full use of that snow to maintain the good conditions until the very end of the season.
As we listen to users' opinions, we will be reconfiguring the features according to current snow conditions and the season and focusing even more effort on maintenance to create "a snow park you can always enjoy." Stay tuned!
