“An amazing mountain to ski”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Good access, no big tow queues, long groomed runs as well as some great blacks. Good restaurant facilities and some amazing views across the valley. Nothing like it for powder!

“On a clear day you can see Fuji”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

A longish shuttle ride from Akakura Onsen but worth a day trip for some very long, cruisy ski runs from high on Mt Myoko. Covered by the Akakura Big 4 ski pass and the shuttle bus is free. Try the No 1 cafe.

“Good for a break from Akakura Onsen”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Nice spot with some good runs. The longest is close to 6klms (I measures it with sat nav). The runs wont keep an average skier interested for more than two days, but its good to take a break here from Akakura Onsen.

“Long rides for Intermediators”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

The ski area is served by only five lifts including one cable car and the variety of slopes may be considered limited. But there are long rides of about 3 km encompassing red and advanced green slopes which were very enjoyable.

“Wide, well groomed slopes”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

The slopes were wide and well groomed. Easily accessed by the shuttle bus. Great snow. No crowds (but avoid week-ends).
