Lotte Arai Ski resort opened in the winter of 2017. Hotel Lotte CEO Kim Jung-hwan stated that he plans for the resort to complete with Asia’s best resorts.

The resort offers a world class standard hotel with over 200 rooms available, as well as extensive spa and onsen facilities. There are also numerous restaurants, stores an international snow school as well as other activities available.

The mountain gets a large amount of snow which makes this a great place for more advanced skiers and boarders and for those who love fresh powder. The mountain at Lotte Arai usually gets the most snow out of any resort in the whole of Japan
