APA Myoko Pine Valley Ski Resort

IMPORTANT NEWS!

Myoko Pine Valley ski lifts did not open at the start of the 2009/10 ski season. At this stage it appears to be a longer-term closure rather than a temporary measure. We will update if further details become available.

OVERVIEW

Myoko APA Pine Valley Resort (アパリゾート妙高パインバレースキー場) is an all year round golf, hot spring and leisure resort. It was a smallish ski resort with only four ski lifts but it does however boast a respectable 365 metres (1197 feet) of vertical descent. The gondola served a green and red run both of which are reasonably long and enjoyable, though neither were challenging. The area was best suited to intermediate skiers and snowboarders but there was some terrain for both beginners and advanced skiers. For boarders there was a half-pipe and some jumps and each night one chair lift kept running until 9pm for those who enjoyed night skiing. However, for skiers and boarders above beginner/intermediate more than one day there used to probably leave you wanting more choice.

Overall Myoko APA Pine Valley was probably a good choice for families with young children. The pistes tended to be pleasantly uncrowded and the resort is quiet and self-contained. There was also day care and/or children’s ski school. If you wanted to relax afterwards there is an onsen with a pleasant open-air area at the APA Pine Valley Hotel.
