Close to Tokyo and suitable for beginners and families, Iwappara Ski Resort features wide open slopes, good restaurants, a hot spring, and a ski school. The main slope runs for about 4 km (2.4 mi) and stretches to a width of around 500 m (1,700 ft), while beginners can try the "Snowscoot" experience or head with the kids to the resort's slide area. Take a lesson, provided in Japanese or English, at the ski school. You can easily access the resort from Tokyo via the Shinkansen train, or by taking a shuttle bus from Echigo Yuzawa station. You can even stay in the nearby town and take a daily cable car to the resort.

This Resort is closed. No more ski. Also near by restaurants are closed. Please don't waste your time. We ended up waisting quite a lot of time. Please call the resort before you plan.
First time I tried snowboarding in my entire life. I had so much fun even though I rammed the plastic barricade at the base of the ropeway. Sorry. 😅 I tried getting down from the top of the mountain to the bottom. I did it with a few stumbles.
