The best winter season has come! Enjoy a delightful winter wonderland at Rokko Snow Park!

This weather here in Kobe is considerably cold compared to that of the regular year. On top of that, we often experience snowfall even in the downtown area. It’s definitely the best season for winter sports!

Given the current corona pandemic situation, it’s quite difficult to meet up with friends at crowded indoor places. Instead, how about going to an outdoor location to enjoy skiing and snowboarding while feeling the super fresh air and taking a deep breath? The Rokko Snow Park is undoubtedly one of the ultimate choices!

The Rokko Snow Park is surrounded by Mt. Rokko’s abundant nature, and what’s more, it’s highly regarded as a winter theme park which is very conveniently accessible in the Hanshin region. It only takes approx. 35 minutes from Sannomiya, Kobe and 60 minutes from the downtown Osaka area to get to the Park.

Look at this white snow world with a clear blue sky! The view will go way beyond your expectations. It’s just situated within an hour away from Kobe and Osaka.

The Rokko Snow Park is open daily until March 6th (Sun). As the Park offers a variety of services for beginners to advanced, please feel free to visit here along with friends, a significant other, or family members!

In this season, snowboarding is allowed all day as well as skiing. Plus, reliable schools for kids, adults, and families are held to support visitors with different levels. Moreover, they will extend their opening hours until 8pm! If you feel like playing in the amazing snow world, today is the day!

Rental gear fully prepared! Just bring yourself!

Also, the latest model of rental gear is lined-up. Skis, ski poles, snowboards, suits, jackets, boots, gloves, and more. You name it, they’ve got it! Just bring yourself!

Please check out their extensive rental collection for kids as well. The sizes start from 90 cm (height). You don’t have to purchase any gear items for kids in advance.

*As the preventive measure for the coronavirus pandemic, their rental items are disinfected with alcohol and outfits and gloves are thoroughly dry-sterilized with high heat (over 70 degrees Celsius).

Select your favorite slope based on your level!
1st slope (Right side / for beginners) and 2nd slope (Left side / for intermediate and advanced visitors)

One of the best things about the Snow Park is that you can pick your favorite slope depending on your style and level. Both slopes will cover various types of skiers and snowboarders.

Also, as a practice zone for super beginners is well organized, they are secure and comfortable to practice until they feel confident enough to try the slopes.

Ski lift at 1st slope (for 2 people)
If you’re not used to the lift, their friendly staff members will guide you. Two types of lifts (A type and B type) are provided in the Park. As B type moves slower than A type and the slope of B type’s landing point is gentle, B type lift is recommended for beginners.

Before dusk

After the sunset, the Park dramatically changes its presence. It’s incredibly mystical. Compared to the daytime, since the slope is less crowded, it’s easier to focus on your own performance.
