Tanigawadake Tenjindaira Ski Resort (谷川岳天神平スキー場)

4.0

Skiing/Snowboarding Area

This ski resort is located at the top of Tanigawadake Ropeway, accessible by bus 25 minutes from the JR Joetsu Line's Minakami Station. This flat, gentle slope stretches out between Tenjintoge and Takakurayama, two peaks of the Tanigawa mountain range. It has a wide variety of courses from beginners’ courses to expert level courses. It boasts an excellent powder snow that does not use artificial snow machines and has a heavy amount of snowfall that, in the high season, exceeds 4 meters in depth. It is also possible to make a day-trip from the metropolitan area, and it is appealing for visitors to be able to enjoy the slopes for an extended length of time until early May (expected).

Tenjin is a biig mountain and receives some of the highest snowfalls in Japan with a correspondingly long season from November through May. The piste is somewhat limited and probably worth a couple...

スキー目的ではありませんので、滑りはしませんでした。ただどんな感じなのか観に行っただけです。

3月の下旬なので真っ白な白銀のゲレンデではありませんでした。現地の方は今年は雪が少ないとおっしゃってました。
滑りやすそうなスキー場でした。
