Overview

Karuizawa Prince Hotel Ski Resort is one of the easiest accessible resorts from Tokyo. You can reach there in about an hour by Shinkansen. The ski resort offers good condition trails mainly for beginner and intermediate level skiers, as well as snow parks. The ski season starts from November as snow machines make good snow in the cold air. A huge resort area lies at the bottom of the ski resort including Prince Hotels and a big shopping complex.

We enjoyed our ski sessions. Nice slopes for beginners and there are shuttle buses to take you around the resorts. A bit pricey though, it’s better to bring your own jacket/ski pants.

Would prefer Yuzawa to Karuizawa due to lack of real snow. Karuizawa mainly uses snow making machines. But views are still wonderful and the outlet mall is good fun for non-skiiers. The lift ticket and rental are also more costly than yuzawa, more of a...More

The ski area is quite confined and the snow is man-made - no powder here folks. Pictures posted on the internet look much better than the reality. Anyway, you can always shop at the nearby outlet mall...
