More Details Emerge of Re-Opening Japanese Ski Area
Work is continuing on the complete renovation of the former Arai Ski Resort in Myoko, Japan, which closed in 2006.

The resort has been bought by the South Korean Lotte Group and will re-open next season as “Lotte Arai Resort”.

As part of the re-opening the new owners have recently released a new piste map for the area.

The Lotte Group have said their intention is to create the best ski resort in asia and the company is creating 250 upscale hotel rooms at the resort which will also re-open its extensive spa and onsen facilities, as well as a variety of restaurants and retail stores and will offer an international snow school, and alpine activities.

Lotte Arai Mountain Ski Resort will re-open with five ski lifts serving a 951 metre vertical and accessing 11 pistes, the longest over 5km long, and a terrain park. All of the ski lifts and other resort facilities are being “completely renovated” and new summer and year-round activities added.
The ski area has an excellent snowfall reputation thanks to its location in the first mountain range west of the Sea of Japan.
