2015-01-18 05.08.34 pmSounds like Yanaba is taking another year off and will be closed for 2016/17 season.

After being shut for a season, Yanaba has re-opened in 2014 by new owners. Although the resorts has always been known for it’s nye-tahs (night skiing). Yanaba is now even more focused on bringing in locals for a late night shred with an updated bar, more features in their park, and extended lift hours.

Yanaba has it’s own train station, Yanaba-skijo-mae (NOT Yanaba) so it’s really easy to get there from Kamishiro Station in the Goryu Village and the ¥210 ride only takes 9 minutes. You can use the hyperdia website to check for train schedules or check the information area at Lodge tabi-tabi.
