Osorakan Ski Resort, located on Hiroshima Prefecture’s highest peak Mount Osorakan (1,346 m), opened in the early Showa era, at around the same time as Azumayama Ski Resort shown in [34]. It was the country’s southernmost fully equipped ski resort, and hosted four prefectural championships before the war, as well as the first western Japan downhill championship in 1936. The footage shows men and women enjoying backcountry skiing on the wooded slopes of Mt. Osorakan, and rime-covered trees, a rare sight in Hiroshima Prefecture. Today there are campsites and hiking trails where the ski resort used to be, offering year-round outdoor leisure facilities.
