First-rate powder snow in one of Tohoku’s top snow resorts
Appi Kogen is the largest-scale ski resort in Japan's northeastern Tohoku region. High-quality powder snow, rivaling that of Hokkaido, falls on the resort’s slopes, and is carefully compacted and groomed to form perfect pistes for smooth and stress-free rides. Eleven of the total 21 ski runs are over 2,000 meters in length, giving intermediate and experienced skiers and snowboarders plenty of slope satisfaction. Even if you are a beginner, you can enjoy gliding down the longest run of 5,500 meters. Whatever your level, Appi Kogen has something to offer. At the resort base, you can find a range of accommodation options including the Hotel Appi Grand, and the Appi Onsen hot springs — the perfect place to relax after a day on the slopes. Activity options are not just limited to the major winter sports, as there are a wide variety of other things to do.
