Introducing ski slopes on TAKASU MOUNTAINS
We are introducing all features of each ski slope.
“TakasuDyna” refers to Dynaland x Takasu Snow Park, which has the largest number of visitors in western Japan (*).
Ski slopes of two ski resorts are sharing the eastern part of Mt Dainichigatake. If you purchase a common ticket, you can choose and ski freely. The slope area is the largest in western Japan! The total skiing distance including the total length of the course is 43km! You can enjoy skiing on the vast slope.
(* Number of visitors in 2018-19 season is based on TakasuDyna research.)
If you are concerned about accessibility, WashiTopia made up of Washigatake Ski Resort x WhitePia Takasu is around 3 km from Takasu IC. It is the most accessible among all the ski resorts in TAKASU MOUNTAINS.
WhitePia Takasu is on the eastern slope of Mt Washigatake. You can see the magnificent view of the Hakusan mountain range from the mountaintop.
