Winter sports are fun! In Gujo, we have 11 ski resorts that add excitement to the winter here. We have good courses for experts, such as the ones where the Snowboard FIS World Cup is held. Of course, we provide many course layouts for intermediate and beginning skiers, as well. Opening in early November, each ski resort provides great facilities. These include a halfpipe course for snowboarding that is one of the largest in Japan, with music provided by hot DJs you can listen to while you cruise the ski slopes. Please come and enjoy the dynamism and speed of skiing and snowboarding here in Gujo!
If you first experience a snow resort, try riding a banana boat and tubing! You can experience an exciting ride on the snow while enjoying the beautiful surrounding natural scenery. Children can have fun sledding. An exclusive sledding area is provided so children can sled safely.
The “Gujo Takasu Snow Festival” is held in the mid February every year. Here you can see big snow sculptures and kamakura snow houses, and enjoy many other snowrelated events.
＊ Plentiful restaurants and souvenir shops in the area mean you can have fun off the slopes as well! There are also hot springs nearby. Why don't you refresh yourself there?
Every ski resort has a rental shop for your convenience.
