Long runs, good gondola

Long runs. Fresh snow and if you are lucky enough you might be able to ski with some snow-monkeys like we did.

Probably the best of the ski resorts in the Myoko region, especially for those who love going to the snow parks. Suginohara has a massive one and it was pretty much empty the entire day so you get free reign. Also, the runs are really wide and have great snow - obviously! You will enjoy this resort much better if... More

Great Ski Resort and best tree skiing. The Japow was terrific. Check out the ski guide services provided by "Powder Recon" for excellent guides, terrific value, beautiful and well priced accommodation and terrific local culture at local restaurants

We love Suginohara ski resort. Great snow and a choice of terrain makes it an ideal resort for everyone. Down the bottom is nice and gentle for beginners whilst up the top there are challenging runs for the experts. And if you want a really long run, ski the gondola. If you are really lucky you will get to see... More

What can I say? No lift lines, cheap tickets, deep powder, this place is great, only downside - some better cafes. Not much choice.

The only issue for us, coming from Akakura Onsen in late March, was the cessation of the shuttle bus. But it wasn't an issue because Kougakuro royokan gave us rides there and back! Having skied at Onsen, Akakan and Suginohara, it was a no brainer to choose Suginohara on our fourth and final day. We were lucky to have sunshine... More

Incredibly long runs but they try to groom the slopes too heavily. One of the longest gondolas in Japan with some good red slopes and a lot of green slopes. We skied there two days with some moderate powder on the first day that was compressed into slick icy patches by the groomers overnight.

We loved skiing Sugi for a day! There is plenty of terrain and big wide piste slopes! The lifts are all top quality.. Especially that spacious gondola!!! Easy to get to from akakura onsen via the free shuttle! Only down point is there wasn't a lot of challenging steep slopes but still had a great day here!
