Myoko Ski Resorts
The Myoko area is a paradise for winter sports lovers with a great range of Myoko accommodation options. Most Myoko ski resorts now have a number of ski schools with instructors teaching partly or exclusively in English to help you improve your skiing, or to get out into the beautiful backcountry of the area.
There are endless ways to enjoy skiing here, from long, scenic, tree-lined slopes to challenging bump runs—and especially deep, deep powder. The best months for skiing the Myoko Ski Resorts tend to be in January and February, although great snowfalls can extend anywhere between November and May!
Need Myoko ski schools? You find plenty of options available as well as Myoko ski rentals. For Myoko backcountry skiers there is plenty of great terrain to be found and some great local tour guides to help you out if needed. Snowshoe enthusiasts will find several good runs around the Myoko area with rental gear and snowshoe tours available.
The Myoko Ski Resorts are located in the south-western end of Niigata Prefecture – just a two hour ride from Tokyo on the shinkansen bullet train, then a local train to Myoko Kogen.
