Both skiers and snowboarders will have a great time at Appi Kogen.

Appi Kogen is located on latitude 40°, just like ski resorts such as the Austrian Arlberg resort and Aspen in the United States. 

The resort offers long ski slopes, deep snow runs and a snow park, making for a wonderful experience for all skiers and snowboarders. The Salomon Easy Fun Park was recently renewed and now features two new areas: The "Beginner" area and the "Fun" area, which is designed for more experienced snow sports fans. Both those new to the sport and more advanced skiers and snowboarders will love the opportunities presented to them at Appi Kogen. 

The resort is also a great choice for families. The family park is separated from the rest of the runs and offers fun activities for children, like sledding and tubing.
