Arai Lotte Resort


Arai Ski resort was first opened in 1993 by the son of Sony co-founder Akio Morita. It was forced to close in 2006 due to financial troubles, and for the past 10 years it has been empty and unused. All of that will change this season when it reopens its doors as Arai Lotte Ski Resort. Hotel Lotte CEO Kim Jung-hwan stated that he plans for the resort to complete with Asia’s best resorts.

The resort will offer world class standard hotels with over 200 rooms available, as well as extensive spa and onsen facilities. There will also be numerous restaurants, stores an international snow school as well as other activities available. With Lotte aiming to make this one of Asias best resorts this will be a very exciting place to head to this season. All the lifts and buildings currently being renovated and activities are being planned for all seasons.

The mountain gets a large amount of snow which will make this a great place for more advanced skiers and boarder and for those who love fresh powder.
