A perfect powder day destination
Come to White Valley Ski Area on a powder day for an unmatched experience. On days with lots of fresh snow, the resort leaves most of its terrain ungroomed, allowing advanced intermediate and expert skiers and snowboarders to enjoy Gunma's high-quality snow.
On days with less fresh snow, the resort provides various courses suitable for a range of ability levels.
Getting to White Valley is easy; just take a free shuttle bus from Minakami Station on the JR Joetsu Line.
