Hagurosan is a small ski hill located on Mt Haguro, one of the 'Three Mountains of Dewa', in Tsuruoka city in the north-western region of Yamagata Prefecture. Nearby Haguro Shrine is popular throughout the year. A path of 2,466 stone steps leads to the summit of the mountain, past the famous Goju-to five story pagoda and various shrines.

Yamagata Prefecture is located in the south-west part of Tohoku with the west coast facing the Sea of Japan. The boundaries of Yamagata Prefecture are all mountainous with Niigata Prefecture and Fukushima Prefecture to the south, Akita Prefecture to the north and Miyagi Prefecture to the east. The ski and snowboard ski hills in Yamagata range from very small one-lift local hills to the biggest individual ski resort in Japan (Zao Onsen) and are spread across the Prefecture.
