Jōetsu International Skiing Ground Station (上越国際スキー場前駅 Jōetsu-Kokusai-Sukī-jō-mae-eki) is a railway station on the Joetsu Line in Minamiuonuma, Niigata, Japan, operated by East Japan Railway Company (JR East).
The station is unstaffed and consists of two elevated side platforms serving two tracks. The platforms are long enough to handle four-car trains. There is no access between the two platforms except via the road passing beneath the tracks. Simple prefab waiting rooms are provided at ground level on either side of the station, as there are no shelter facilities on the platforms.
