Sahoro Resort is located in the southern region of Shintoku town in central Hokkaido. The ski area is on the eastern slopes of Mt Sahoro and about 12km to the north of the main town centre area. A new northern area increased the size of the ski area by about 50% for the 2016-2017 season, serviced by a new quad lift. The new area opened up five new courses.

Sahoro Resort Bear Mountain - a kind of 'higuma bear safari park' - is open outside of the winter season and by the ski area base.
