Daisetsuzan Kurodake Ski Area
Located in Daisetsuzan National Park, Mt. Kurodake offers breathtaking mountainside skiing. Enjoy the silvery snow-capped scenery as you ride the ropeway to the mountain's halfway point. Next, change to the chair lift and ascend to the seventh station where you will start your run. Typically opening in November, Kurodake is said to offer Japan's earliest natural snow skiing. So, if you can't wait for winter to hit the rest of Japan, head to Kurodake! This is also an excellent spring skiing mountain, with lifts open until Golden Week (early May). Come visit Japan in spring and still enjoy winter snow -- two seasons in one trip!
Opening hours differ depending on the season.
