About “Iwappara Ski Resort”

Iwappara is highly recommended for families and group/school ski trips. The slopes spreads out in the shape of an open fan enabling easy monitoring of the slopes above for organisers. It is very easy to find your away around, so there is little danger of people getting lost or disorientated. Iwappara conducts stunning views over the whole of Yuzawa and another highlight is the ungroomed Iiji Course which is a 35 degree slope that boasts thigh deep snow on a powder day. Children are well catered for and the 'Sponge Bob's Kids Ski Lesson' is a fun way for the youngsters to learn.

Pluses About 4km long run with 500m wide main slope. Full of facilities for young children.
Minuses Relatively short season due to low altitude
