Suginohara is a great all round resort. Once you clear the bottom gondola is handles the weekend crowd pretty well. The mountain is well suited for beginner to intermediate skiers and boarders with long wide runs. Not a huge amount on offer for really advanced riders unless your keen on hiking the peak and going off piste but it does... More

There are many options here for beginners and intermediate skiers and boarders Snow is so good but sadly when that cloud drops on to the mountain it is very challenging However skiers and boarders were generally careful in the bad visibility Thanks all !

Treelined slopes. Needs more snow to cover the bushes. 2 high speed chairs and a gondola create good capacity for almost no crowd during weekdays. With a big4 day ticket you can ski morning to 2 pm in Sugi and the take bus to Ikenotaira for a couple of hours of cruising.

In a word Amazing!!! If you go to Myoko skiing you must visit Suginohara... Although to be honest in would rather it be kept a secret because it's just so good.

The ski resort has uncrowned powder runs with no queues. The longest run drops 1200 metres & needless to say is a great ride. Powder off piste, fast efficient lifts - a skiers paradise during the week.

Akakura Kanko seems to get all the Westerners, leaving Sugi relatively free. Lots of vertical with some steep runs near the top and some wide open spaces. Unfortunately it wasn't a great dumping day when I was there, and the bus is a pain (if you miss the express), but it would be awesome in fresh dumping snow.

Suginohara provides a fabulous skiing experience with very long runs mostly serviced by a gondola or covered chair lifts.

Some great long runs from beginner to intermediate. But as the title suggests needs a good amount of powder to be truly enjoyable.

The whole Myoko area has so much potential for being a great under the radar ski trip. However it's super reliant on natural snow production. They normally get amazing amounts of snow, but if they don't have much snow they don't know how to take advantage of the snow they have. They don't groom to even out bad spots, they... More

Suginohara is a bit of a trek from the main areas of Myoko, but is well worth the travel. I only made it out there 4-5 times last winter, but it was never too busy and as a result this was some of the most fresh powder I found all season. Sugi is a bit smaller, with fewer lifts and... More
