Posh but quiet
We had a lovely sunny calm day at Sahoro. There has been a good bit of snow the day before and the resort had been closed so we got very lucky with perfect conditions. All the "advanced" runs hadn't been groomed and had a nice shin high coating on them -- that stayed pretty untouched for the first few hours:

In the afternoon we scouted out the many tree areas that aren't roped off where we could find some

Like the "10shun" review, I was thinking about keeping this place a secret.

We didn't stay at the club med but the hotel just down the road. It was great value.

Will go back there as soon as I can, spending the whole day in the trees under the gondola

Sahoro Resort review by Kat
This was our first visit to Sahoro.

The resort is a smaller one however, uncrowded slopes, groomed to perfection, endless tree runs and challenging moguls would appeal to many skiers regardless of their skiing ability.

I am not going to compare this resort with St Moritz, Aspen or Four Valleys - it would be unfair. This is Japan, come here for a hospitality, food; culture and a great service provided by the staff at the hotel and skiing

Sahoro Review by marnix
3 days Club Med a good experience combined with good fresh snow.

Good tree runs nothing particularly steep but a lot of fun.

This is really a great place for the whole family. Drop you kids at the kids club in the monirng and truly enjoy skiing the whole day.

Sahoro doesn't get as much snow as some other resorts but we were in luck and had nice knee-deep snow and good practice groomed slopes for people that stick to groomers

Sahoro Resort review by 10shun
I'm actually very reluctant to write a review as Sahoro is a hidden gem, and I really don't want that to change.

However, when the powder snow falls, I feel like telling the world how good we have it. Working in Perisher Blue in Australia, and Whistler Blackcomb in Canada, I'm used to having to dodge multitudes of people of all skiing and snowboarding abilities, and I'm also used to teaching my students how to manipulate their away around a

Sahoro Resort review by siem
We had no idea of what to expect of Sahoro resort, but being in Hokkaido, we were hoping for excellent snow conditions. A resort pamphlet we got from our local hill showed that there were areas in the trees you are allowed to ski in... which I suppose is quite suprising given the attitude to skiing off the trail that most resorts have.

Anyway, Sahoro has a main gondola that goes from the very bottom of the resort to the

Our group had one snowboarder, one ski boarder, and two who both used short skiis, and regular skis. We are of varying abilities, and we were all able to find areas where we could ski at our own levels. Food at the restaurant was reasonablly priced and good

Well SAHORO RESORT,

What Can I Say!

As a couple of Gaijin Hackers, we learnt to snowboard a few years ago in Japan. Now with working a six day a week job that only leaves a Sunday to play in the snow so this is where Sahoro has become a favorite mountain for us. It's the closest resort with only a 3 hour drive to get there so heres a typical day we spent last year at Sahoro.

Well its 4.30 and the

All that mountain and hardly anyone on it! For days I skied under a majestically blue sky, bright burning sun and although no powder graced the slopes last week, the snow was excellent and even better, quick!

No lines, space for everyone. You could pick a line to ski and not worry about anyone crossing over into your desired path.

This place is truly awesome!

Adventure trails in the forest, a bump and jump set off to one side of the slope for

We have just come back from a 4 day holiday at Sahoro, and we must say we had a wonderful time. We stayed at Club Med which is ultra-gaijin-friendly and it was a great place to stay with a family (as we are).

The resort is good too.

There are English lessons to be had - and lots of instructors too.

OK, this is not so much a resort review but a general review of "what's good for you" in Japan skiing. Tonight our family of 5 skiers is packing our bags for our 2nd trip to Club Med Sahoro. My husband and I have skied for more than 50 years between us. After that many years you tend not to bother with lessons.

Well,let me tell you that no matter how good or bad you are, your skiing can always

One of the best places for a gaijin familt to go in Japan - period. Almost more targeted to the foreigners than Japanese, Club Med at the bottom of the slopes is an amazing service. No need AT ALL to worry about language problems.

The resort, whilst not the biggest place, is certainly decent and we had really nice powder snow when we were there. Dropped the children off at the ski school, and then enjoy the day out there.

Very highly
