Just 10 minutes’ walk to the Shirogane Ski Slope in Sugadaira Kogen Ski Resort!

Known for its high quality smooth powder snow, this popular ski slope has the added appeal of enabling long cruising for 6 km from the peak of Mt. Neko! Covering some 175 ha, the vast ski slope provides a total of 60 diverse skiing/snowboarding courses for visitors to enjoy. HOTEL FUJIYA guests receive a special ski slope discount, as well as a free shuttle bus service between the hotel and ski slope.
