Since the resort’s opening in 1981, it has kept growing as one of the best all-season resorts in Japan. Working with multiple international companies, we have seen the opening of “ANA InterContinental Appi Kogen Resort” and “Harrow International School Appi Japan” in 2022. Also “Crayon Shinchan Kids Ski School” and Ski and Snowboard rental “Mountain Station” and “Executive Lounge” will be newly opened this winter 2023-24. Appi Resort has a strong history in skiing, and has grown as a global resort destination.

In addition, the resort has been focusing on conserving and preserving the snow by cooperating with an environmental organization. Located at 40 degrees north latitude, all 21 of ski runs are located across two mountains, Mt. Maemori and Mt. Nishimori. All of our extensive ski areas contain world-class snow quality lasting 4 months from the beginning of December. Skiing long distance on the amazing quality snow is a great way to maintain good health. Even if you have never tried skiing and snowboarding, our multilingual instructors and mountain guides will be happy to help you anytime. APPI resort center and APPI plaza has been renovated this Autumn.
