The awards were established in 2013 with an aim to develop the ski industry as a whole and are the most prestigious ski industry awards in the world. Ski resorts and hotels from around the globe enter the awards, and each year the winners are selected by an online voting process involving the media, travel agencies and other members of the world skiing community.
While the area is beautiful year round, winter is Appi Kogen’s most attractive season and the area’s ski and snowboarding facilities are recognized as some of the best in Japan. The resort, only 50 minutes by bus from Morioka Station, is directly connected to the slopes and features an incredible ski-in/ski-out location from which you can make the most of the region’s world-class snow. Guests can also enjoy relaxing in the neighboring hot springs after a long day on the slopes. During this winter season at the resort, lift tickets for children of elementary school age and younger are free, making family ski and snowboard trips even more affordable. If you’re getting ready to make plans for this winter, you shouldn’t miss the chance to book early at Appi Kogen Ski Resort.
