Iizuna Kogen Ski Area (飯綱高原スキー場, Iizuna Kōgen Sukī-jō) is a skiing area located in Nagano, Nagano, Japan. It is operated by Nagano City.
Constructed on existing alpine skiing runs, it hosted the freestyle skiing events for the 1998 Winter Olympics. The venue was a temporary one for those games.

The resort has steadily declined in popularity and closed in March, 2020 due to insufficient ski numbers and lack of snow fall. The prefecture has offered the resort for free to interested parties if they take on the business liabilities.

  • Good place. I haven't skied in here but sledged with my kids. There is a convenient size slope for sledging and played freely. Also a feee parking lot is available.
  • Pretty fun place after a good snow. But, its a bit low compared to other mountains so it doesnt have fresh powder for long.
