Very snowboarder friendly resort- hardly any flats and all the lifts have footrests. Wide groomers for beginners and lots of powder in the trees for intermediates. Beautiful tree-lined runs with views of lakes below. Our hotel owner told us that you can even see Mt. Fuji from Suginohara if you come on a clear day. Definitely come here if you... More

Nice resort not the biggest area to ski but with the right snow conditions its a decent enough resort. Minimal nightlife but as to be expected with these small Japanese ski resorts. Tip: Good for a weekend trip but would find it difficult to stay longer.

As with all the Japanese resorts we have visited, Sugi suffers from antiquated lifts and non-existent grooming. Boasting one of the longest runs in Japan (a green run), the experience was that no grooming for at least 2 days made it a nightmare for the top third of the run for anyone unable to cope with thick heavy chop. The... More

We had spent our first few days skiing at Akakura Onsen and on the recommendation of one of our hotel staff we decided to take the free shuttle across to Suginohara for the day. The bus leaves from just outside the Post Office and meanders its way through the back streets and drops in at the various resorts along the... More

... unless there is enough fresh powder to ski the trees. If it snows then the top chair lift is good for one or two days deep powder skiing. Which means in return, if it does not have the powder snow then the groomed pistes are wide and by fare not steep. Blue colour marking to North American or European... More

We stayed at Akakura Onsen and took the free shuttle from next to the post office across to Suginohara for a day. The shuttle takes approx 45 minutes and departs Akakura Onsen every hour at half past the hour. On return from Suginohara it departs every hour on the hour. Views at the top of the gondola were fantastic. We... More

This resort was great for a couple of days. The skiing in the trees was fantastic, but after a few days you want a bit more variety. I serviced gondola to Ikenitair would improve things tremenously. The views at the top of this resort are terrific.

I stayed about 20 minutes up the road at Akakura Onsen town and caught the free morning bus (drop off and pick up every hour) that links the four resorts at Mt Myoko to come and snowboarded at Suginohara for a half day. I had a Myoko Super Big-4 Lift Pass, which gave me full mountain access for 21 days... More
