GALA Yuzawa is in the town of Echigo Yuzawa in Niigata Prefecture. Located about 200kms to the north of Tokyo, the area is famous for its impressive snowfall, and with skiing from 1,181m down to 358m, GALA Yuzawa resort is the perfect place to enjoy the excellent snow conditions.
GALA Yuzawa is directly connected to the bullet train station. As you get off the train, pick up your lift ticket and gear, and you’re on your way! It couldn't be easier. You can wake up in Tokyo and be on the slopes by 8 am!
You can purchase a lift ticket at the information counter located in front of the station’s ticket gate. Vouchers can also be exchanged for a lift ticket here.
Visitors who do not plan to ski or snowboard only need a round-trip ticket for the gondola to enjoy the ski slope.
Rental equipment is available at the rental counter located on the same floor as the information counter.
Fashionable ski wear and the latest ski and snow board models are available.
Make the most of your time at GALA by taking a lesson with our English speaking professional instructors at Canyons Snow Sports School!
The Ski & Board School is located in the building “Cowabunga” at the bottom station of the Gondola.
Starting this season, beginners’ lessons are available in Chinese. If interested, please come to the Concierge desk located on the second floor of Cowabunga.
