The three ski resorts are physically connected on-mountain by the Lando Ropeway and Buggy lift (see image below), and a joint lift pass is
available for the whole area. That means you can easily go from one to the other during your day on the slopes.
With a vertical of around 900m, 48 ski courses in total and an efficient lift system made up of modern Gondola lifts, Ropeways, quad, pair and triple ski lifts, there’s something for everyone at YUZAWA SNOW LINK; whether you are beginner or an advanced skier or snowboarder.
Beginners and families will enjoy learning to ski or snowboard on a selection of gentle slopes, or even just the experience of playing in the snow (‘yuki-asobi’) and enjoy the beautiful winter wonderland scenery.
More experienced skiers and snowboarders are rewarded with often excellent snow conditions, a wide selection courses, mogul runs, ungroomed courses and other challenges.The YUZAWA SNOW LINK ski lift pass give you access to the whole area, so you can ride all of the lifts and courses as much as you like. While the resorts are lift-linked together at the top, convenient shuttle buses also operate regularly between the base areas of each resort.
We look forward to welcoming you to enjoy YUZAWA SNOW LINK this winter.

YUZAWA SNOW LINK is in the Yuzawa region of Niigata Prefecture, Japan. It is very easy to get to from central Tokyo,
taking as little as 75 minutes from Tokyo Station using the Joetsu Shinkansen bullet train line.
The main train station in central Yuzawa town is called Echigo Yuzawa Station. Regular free shuttle buses operate from
the station to the ski resort base areas. Just a few minutes further on, the GALA Yuzawa even has its own Shinkansen station
called GALA Yuzawa Station.
By car, Yuzawa can be reached from Tokyo within two hours using the Kanetsu Expressway. The base area of each resort is 5-10 minutes from the Yuzawa IC exit of the toll road.
The shuttle bus route has become more convenient this season. You can access to Yuzawa Kogen,
GALA Yuzawa and Ishiuchi Maruyama ski resorts from Echigo-Yuzawa Station (west and east exit) without changing buses.
