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.

As the 2018-2019 winter season approaches, we will gradually be updating the information for every ski resort in Japan.

Many ski resorts in Japan do not update their own information until the autumn months and so our process of updating information will be ongoing until November.

Resorts usually open and close around the same time each season - if the 2017-2018 planned season dates are still displayed on this page, they can be used as a good indication of the season length.
