Sayama Ski Resort in 2019

The Sayama Ski Resort generally have their season opening event on the last Friday of October. Last year, 2019, they didn’t open because they undertook renovations. But it looks like they are planning to open in 2020:

The resort opens from 9 am. There is usually a live performance from 11 am to about 11.40 am. In the morning the slopes will not be open to the public due to the opening ceremony and events. The slopes will be open from midday.

Where can I go skiing in Saitama?

Saitama does not have any natural ski slopes. The only place you can currently ski indoors is the Sayama Ski Resort by Seibu, in Tokorozawa. Its location makes it the closest place to Tokyo that you can ski, but it is an artificial ski slope. But as it is an artificial slope you can ski as early as the end of October.

The dates of the ski season at the resort have not yet been set for the 2020 / 2021 season (September 24th 2020)

Sayama Ski Resort Hours

For the month of October the Sayama Ski Resort used to open from 10 am to 6 pm. From November the resort will stay open until 9 pm on weekdays. On weekends they will have their popular night skiing. The hours for that are from 10 pm to 6 am the following morning. Until they release the 2020 / 2021 information we won’t know if its the same in the new building.

Sayama Ski Resort Costs

They have many different packages that cost varying amounts, but by and large it costs about 3,900 yen for an adult to ski. Children of primary school age and younger are FREE in.
