We’ve posted the dates for Yuzawa Ski Resorts planned openings for Winter 2018/19, and we now have the full list of the resorts further up the valley in Minami Uonuma. For those of you who need a refresher in Snow Country geography Yuzawa resorts would be everywhere from Naeba to Gala, and Minami Uonuma would then be every resort from Ishiuchi Maruyama to the two Hakkai-san Resorts. Between the two area you have over 20 areas to explore which adds up to a huge amount of terrain, and driving from Echigo-Yuzawa Station to either end of the valley would take about the same amount of time. So head out and explore this winter.
