Palcall Tsumagoi Resort is located in Tsumagoi village on the eastern slopes of Mt Azumaya in the western region of Gunma Prefecture. It is close to the border with Nagano Prefecture with Sugadaira Kogen being on the western side of the same mountain. It is one of the largest ski resorts in the Kanto region. There are two main connected areas called Palcall and Baragi. The resort has been operating in one form or another since 1983 - Palcall and Baragi actually used to be separate resorts until 2005. Look out for the fine mountain views on a clear day including Yokoteyama, Kusatsu-Shirane, Manza and Asama.
