We had a week at Appi Kogen and really enjoyed the skiing. With two Gondolas, it is easy to get from bottom to top quickly. Slopes are well groomed.

Great skiing. The snow was fantastic and the crowds low, even on Sunday!! Fresh tracks still available at 2pm!! well worth a few days skiing. Reasonably big by Japanese standards. Ski school had English speaking staff. Lots of luck choices, prices OK.

Visited Appi Kogen in August. It was very quiet without lots of skiers but I visited the top of the mountain and saw the ski runs which looked great. I hope to come back in winter and try them.
