APPI is located in latitude 40° N sharing its position with some of the world’s most famous ski resorts, including Austria’s Arlberg and USA’s Aspen.
Most of APPI’s slopes are facing the north side where snow conditions are better because of less direct sun hitting the slopes during the day. Plus, APPI’s Aspirin Snow (light & fine snow flakes) is perfect for skiers and snowboarders.
Ski-in/ski-out is available with a handful of extended runs that start high on Mt. Maemori including the longest run, Yamabato Run (5.5 km) for beginners, finishing at the hotel APPI Grand. The large scale of 21 different terrains is similar to European and American resorts for all levels of skiers and snowboarders.
The lemon gold APPI Grand Hotel is popular and distinctive and provides a delightfully high standard of accommodation, a very extensive range of facilities and exceptional service. There are also bars and restaurants, swimming pool, gym, hot spring, rental centre and shops under the same roof.
APPI is a family-friendly resort with a wide range of additional features including nature experience programs such as snowshoeing and country skiing, private ski and snowboard lessons with English-speaking instructors.
APPI Family Park is conveniently situated in front of the Hotel APPI Grand and is fully-fenced, providing loads of fun for kids. In addition to lots of playground equipment, the park has magic carpets to service tubing, tobogganing and a ski area. A collection of Kamakura igloos are also enjoyed as a popular lunch spot for family groups.
APPI’s Salomon & Atomic Collaboration Station has quality ski equipment available for hire. As well as the top racing models, freestyle and powder skis it carries the latest Salomon & Atomic ski boots, plus a huge range of snowboards.
