Introducing Tsugaike Mountain

Updated: Nov 12, 2019

Well here is a mountain with so much to offer the family, park rider and powder hound. Driving past this spot it’s easy to think it’s just miles of endless green runs, while that is true and the base is HUGE there is some amazing steep pow runs rising up from mid station with great back country access for those with the brains to enjoy it safely. Riders can also register for an arm band that allows access to some beautiful terrain and side country gates leading to some nice steep spines and pow stashes. Did I mention there is Burger King and Aussie pies at Mid station….. Your welcome.
