Snow Town Yeti is a small ski resort on the southern slope of Mount Fuji. It is notable as one of only two ski resorts found on Mount Fuji (the other is Fujiten), and because it is the first snow resort in Japan to open each season (around late October with man made snow).

The resort has two lifts and four runs. Its two main runs are each about 1000 meters long and well suited to beginner skiers and snowboarders. The shorter (500 meter) secondary runs are steeper and narrower and closed during night skiing. The resort also has a small terrain park with jumps and rails, and a separate snow play area for kids, sledding and beginner skiers. Snow canons provide the resort with man made snow when nature does not cooperate, which is not an uncommon occurrence.
