……
The Sugadaira Kogen Snow Resort, operated by Harle Ski Resort Co., Ltd. (located in Ueda City, Nagano Prefecture, President and CEO: Yoshinobu Sato), a member of the Japan Ski Resort Development Co., Ltd. group, has closed its business period for the 2023-2024 winter season in the past. We are pleased to announce that some courses will be open for extended periods until April 21st, the longest period in 10 years.
*Extension of business period by 37 days from last year.
At Sugadaira Kogen Snow Resort, the winter season usually ends in late March, but in order to prevent light snow in a warm winter, they introduced an artificial snow-making machine that creates icy snow last fall, and as a result of the high temperatures. We are
maintaining the condition of the slopes by creating ice particles, and we have begun efforts to open our ski slopes 15 days earlier than last year, allowing us to operate over a long season.
At the same time, we are also offering skiing content that you can enjoy in spring, such as discount campaigns with season tickets from other ski resorts and private rentals of bumps and poles.

Business closure status in the last 10 years
This season, winter resorts in various regions had little snowfall in January and February due to the warm winter.
At Sugadaira Kogen, we are maintaining more snow than usual thanks to the introduction of snowmaking machines, and as a result, the operating period is expected to be 37 days longer than last season. We will continue to aim to expand the business period and make it possible for you to enjoy long-season skiing at Sugadaira Kogen. [Background of introducing snowmaking machine]
Sugadaira Kogen is a frigid region that can sometimes be the coldest in Japan, and the ski resort is open from early December every year. However, in recent years, due to climate change, there are many warmer days and the snowfall season is delayed in some seasons, leading to concerns that the operating period of ski resorts may be shortened. Sugadaira Kogen Snow Resort opened last season as usual, but the season was short due to low snowfall and ski resorts closing early. Therefore, in order to allow our customers to enjoy themselves even in seasons when snowfall is not expected, and while taking advantage of Sugadaira’s cold weather, we have decided to introduce a snowmaking machine that can efficiently make snow even during periods when artificial snowmaking machines cannot be used. I did it.
In addition, we hope that the environment surrounding the ski resort will contribute to the industry surrounding the ski resort, including nearby lodging facilities, restaurants, and souvenir shops.

“NSD Kids Program” can still be used!
In order to have as many children as possible make their debut on a snowy mountain, Sugadaira Kogen Snow Resort is participating in the “NSD Kids Program,” which allows children to ski anywhere and as many times as they like at 12 ski resorts across the country, led by the Japan Ski Resort Development Group. I’m here.
Come and visit Sugadaira Plateau, which has a mild climate in the spring season, easy access from the city center, and a high rate of sunny skies.
Please enjoy the winter season until the end.
