Skiing was sensational. Long wide runs. This was the best skiing we did in Myoko. Longest run in Japan but top section doesn't open if it's very windy. Still amazing

Visited for a day. Not many lifts but a beautiful area with huge long slope and nice wide runs. Sadly our day was not great weather. We had a fab kebab near the bus area...really tasty and delicious and only 700 yen. Not Japanese but yummy! Would love to return on a bluebird day. Very pretty area!

Suginohara is a rather small ski area on the southern side of mount Myoko. It provides some very long slopes, a mix of wide greens and narrow reds (and a few black) and can keep you smiling for a day or two. Not a thrill maybe ... but an alternative when you want to ski without the crowds. In case... More

If you want uncrowded (except Sundays) long, cruising runs, great snow, no waiting in lift lines, and the longest run in Japan (8.5 km), this is your ski park. My most favorite in all of Japan!

There are so many things to love about skiing in Japan I don't know where to start. Have you ever gone to a hot springs with a grocery store and a kebab shop attached? Sugi is spectacular for the following reasons: 1) 4 hour passes. You rock up and the clock starts at anytime. Amazing. No half day starts at... More

A meandering 8,5 km course from the top is one of the longest in the country.The lift infrastructure is good although it is not the latest model.It is said that on a clear day, uncertain how many in a season, you can see Mt Fuji in the distance.Like a lots of Japanese ski resorts, the ski area isn’t big enough...

Very well organised and beautiful views, lots of great off piste through the tress on powder days. stay in Akakura Onsen if your japanese is limited ( i recommend pension milepost ) as their are regular buses to Suginohara and Akakura has more english speaking facilities like restaurants etc.

Definitely the best ski resort in Myoko city. They didn't have much snow this season, but still it was a lot for us. One of the snowy days we had, we had knee high fresh snow every time when we get off the chair lift. Mitahara zone was our favourite. They also had non-groomed area left which was fun! We... More

I spent one day at Sugi with the promise of long runs and deep powder. I was worried initially when only 5cm of snow was predicted over night only to wake up to 50cm!!! Epic snow, epic trees, epic day!!!
