The Ski Resort

From April onwards, the summer ski resort on Mount Gassan not far from Nishikawa opens every year. In winter, the access roads are buried by such large masses of snow that the area is also called the "Gassan Glacier".

Between April and July, skiers can expect 10 kilometres of mostly natural slopes. A double chair lift leads from the main building in the valley up to the ski area. From there it continues with two ski lifts. However, these do not lead to the summit. The only way to get there is a one-hour walk. But this is rewarded by a dreamy descent on a slope that is hundreds of metres wide. Beside a mogul piste, there is also a separate area for snowboarders with a jumping platform in the skiing area. One can have a break in the restaurant in the main building.
