Suhara is located in the northwestern area of Uonuma city in Niigata Prefecture. This ski area offers 'reserved nighta' so you can have the slopes all to yourself in the evenings if you like (at a cost).

The 'original character' mascot for Suhara is 'Suha-ratto'... it looks like it is a rat that stands like a human.

Uonuma city is located just to the north of Minamiuonuma and Yuzawa in Niigata Prefecture.
