Skiing in Gassan

Japan or “JaPow”, is renowned for its amazing amount of snow… even in spring! While most ski resorts in Japan start their seasons from mid-late December and go through to late March or early April, Gassan’s season doesn’t actually start until early April, and ends late July. It is located in the central region of Yamagata Prefecture, more than 600km south of Niseko.

Gassan is only a small resort with only 1 lift and 2 T-bars, 10km of slopes available split between beginner, intermediate and advanced runs. The lift ticket prices are just 4,600 yen for 1 adult day pass. The 2017 season is starting on 8 April, and is currently getting 10cm minimum daily! How about a week in Gassan and a week in Nozawa Onsen?

With 25cm of fresh snow just last night, Nozawa Onsen is looking good for spring skiing too! With not as many crowds on the mountain, plenty of bluebird days, and discounted accommodation, contact us today to get a quote and enjoy spring in Nozawa Onsen!
