St.MARY is located in Kawasaki town in the south-western region of Miyagi Prefecture. The courses are on the eastern foothills of Mt Gando. The base of the ski hill is just to the north of the expressway but most of the ski courses are actually on the other side of the expressway - the lifts and courses go over (and under) the expressway at two points near base. St Mary enjoys easy access from both the Miyagi and Yamagata regions.

Miyagi Prefecture is part of the northern Tohoku region of the main island of Honshu. It has a long Pacific coastline and is bordered with Iwate Prefecture to the north, Yamagata Prefecture to the west and Fukushima Prefecture to the south. The ski hills in Miyagi Prefecture are found in the mountainous regions stretching from the north to south of the western region of the prefecture.

2018-2019 SKI RESORT INFORMATION UPDATES
The 2018-2019 winter season is approaching! Hurray!

At the time of writing more than 60% of the ski hills in Japan have still not updated their own information for the upcoming season. We are continuing to manually update the information on these ski resort pages of SnowJapan but for the moment things are unavoidably a mix of old and new. In most cases ski resorts open and close around the same dates each season, so even if the planned season dates shown on this page are still from the 2017-2018 season, that is usually a good indication of what to expect this time round.
