Myoko Kogen Ski Packages

Myoko Kogen Ski Area

Myoko Kogen Ski Resorts are spread out across Mt Myoko and the neighbouring mountains which include Kanna-San, Hiuchi-Yama, Yakeyama, Okura-Yama, Maeyama, Akakura – Yama and Mitahara – yama. Below these majestic peaks which stretch to 2454 metres above sea level the Myoko Ski area was born.

The mountain receives on average over 13 metres of snow every year which is dumped on Myoko thanks to the lake effect which is caused when Siberian winds sweep down across the Japan sea picking up moisture, when this moisture hits the mountains of Myoko and is cooled then you get beautifully dumps of quality Japan Powder.

The Myoko Kogen ski area consists of 4 main resorts and there are a few others available should this not be enough a little further away. These resorts are Myoko Suginohara, Ikenotaira, Akakura Kanko and Akakura Onsen, the final two make up the Akakura Ski Resort Area, and all of these can be accessed with the with the Big 4 all mountain pass. There are plenty of runs for all skill levels both skiers and boarders with the steepest slope being 38 degrees.

If you are looking for a powder resort after a big dump and that’s a little out of the way of crowds then Seki Onsen Ski resort is the place to go, the resort can be accessed by a daily shuttle that costs 1000 yen one way and is the best place to catch the fresh powder in Myoko Kogen. Tip – Go on a weekday to avoid the local crowds.
In total there are 2 Gondolas and 31 lifts across the Big 4 resorts and another 2 at Seki Onsen resort so plenty of riding to be enjoyed for all.
