Mellow slopes and extensive snow activities
Minakami Kogen Ski Resort is a modest ski area that caters to families, beginners, and intermediates. Many of the resort's slopes are mellow, but they are spread out enough to provide variety. An extensive play area hosts activities such as snowshoeing, sledding, and snowmobiling. Minakamikogen Hotel 200 at the base offers ski-in, ski-out accommodations, as well as large onsen baths and a range of dining options.
Minakami Kogen's position as Gunma's northernmost ski area guarantees good snow quality throughout the winter.
