Walking on Drift Ice
A Ski Resort Full of Fun On and Off the Slopes
Niigata’s plentiful winter snowfall has created one of the finest ski resorts in Japan, Naeba Ski Resort, which is named after the mountain it is located on. Combining fine powder snow and a variety of trails and courses, including a dynamic downhill course and a play zone, Naeba Ski Resort caters to advanced skiers as well as to beginners and families. Great hotels and shops offer high-class facilities off the slopes and firework displays every Saturday during the ski season add to the enjoyment. Being such a popular destination with visitors and easily accessible from Tokyo, Naeba Ski Resort is also the annual host to the internationally renowned music festival Fuji Rock.
