Spring Snow Festival at Yuzawa Kogen

White snow + fresh spring greenery

Venue: Yuzawa Kogen Ropeway Summit Panorama Station Square When: Apr 29th - May 7th 2023

Niigata Prefecture is known for receiving significant amounts of winter snowfall, so much so that it's still visible in some areas later in spring. The Yuzawa Kogen Spring Snow Festival uses this remaining snow to its advantage, with sledding and fun games taking place. There will also be food trucks available from May 3rd through 5th during the event.

Part of the festival's appeal is getting to enjoy what's left of winter while enjoying the fresh greens of spring, and the views from the event venue are nothing short of spectacular.
