Myoko Suginohara Ski Resort

Myoko Suginohara Ski Resort is a large ski located about 10-15 minutes drive from Akakura. The resort covers 1124 meters in verticle and has an 8km run from top to bottom.

When myoko is dumping snow, (most of the winter) Suginohara is our personal recommendation. With the high elevation and low crowd numbers you can ride fresh tracks all day long.
For beginners or intermediate skiers/boarders there are a number of long open trails that are suitable of learning your craft on, before advancing to the powder runs, and tree runs we love so much at Suginohara.
There are 15 ski lifts in total, with a capacity to lift 16,000 people per hour. Suginhohara is also included on the Big 4 Myoko lift ticket so a trip to Myoko is not complete without spending some days riding Suginohara.

Akakura Kanko

Akakura Kanko Resort (often known as 'Akakan') is located on the slopes of Mt Myoko in Myoko city, Niigata Prefecture. The resort is one of the oldest in Japan, and has been operating since 1937. Akakura Kanko resort has one gondola and 6 quad lifts.

The resort is easily walked to by the hotels in Akakura Onsen and Akakura Kanko base area. Ski patrol here can be quite strict about ducking ropes so be sure to take notice of the out of bounds areas so you dont get your pass pulled.
Akakura Kanko is perhaps the most famous and most westernised resort in Myoko and a great place to spend a significant part of your Myoko holiday.
Be sure to stop in to the 5 star Akakura Kanko hotel located half way up the piste for a coffee or a beer. Its one of the most impressive hotels we have seen on a ski mountain.
Akakura Kanko's longest ski run is 4,500 metres the resort has a terrain park and a half pipe and its highest elevation reaches 1500 meters.

Ikenotaira Onsen

Ikenotaira Onsen is located on the eastern slopes of Mt Myoko in Myoko city, Niigata Prefecture, between the Akakura Kanko and Myoko Suginohara resort areas and a 10 minute shuttle from most accommodations in Akakura.
It is not, however, lift or course connected with either.

The resort is medium sized and includes 1 quad and 5 pair lifts and access 700 meters of verticle decent. When staying a week in Myoko we would recommend a day or 2 at Ikenotaira Ski resort as it gives good variety to the others and is included on the Myoko Big 4 lift ticket.
