Massive!! If there is one word to describe Shiga
Kogen it is massive. It is one of the biggest resorts on
the face of the earth with more terrain than you can
There are 47km of ski lifts, over 400ha
of skiable terrain,
3 gondolas, over 60 lifts, and best
of all, only 1 lift ticket is needed.
first ski area you hit coming up the road from Nagano,
Sun Valley, all the way across to Oku Shiga, a distance
of over 15km by car, is all linked by lifts. And when
you're tired of that, and it takes several days just to
cover this area, you can jump on a free shuttle and head
up to Kumanoyu and Yokoteyama for another couple of days
Apart from the size, Shiga Kogen
has a number of other features that will appeal to snow
sports enthusiasts. It is one of the highest resorts in
Japan, with the lower slopes starting at 1,400meters
above sea level, and rising up to the peak of Yokoteyama
at 2,300masl. Of course this high elevation means one
thing, some of the best snow you will ever come across.
Light, fluffy powder day after day.
attraction is the accommodation,
which is nearly 100% ski in/ ski out.
And if you
feel like a day off, you can pop down to the world
famous snow monkeys, or experience one of Japan's top
hot spring towns in Yudanaka / Shibu Onsen.
now dead easy to get to Shiga Kogen with the
Nagano Snow Shuttle running direct services from
Narita Airport daily over winter.
