Even during what was described to us as “ the worst snow season in 40 years”, there was plenty of snow and great conditions. The runs are well suited to intermediate skiers and there’s plenty of variety and areas to explore in the large interconnected mountains. And a massive bonus is that there seems to be very few people around for the size of the resorts, particularly midweek. Good food availability and good infrastructure in gondolas and chair lifts. We loved it and would happily return.

We come to shiga kogen every year for skiing and snow boarding the snow is amazing as well as all the runs. The mountain has good quality snow and infrastructure. We saw snow monkeys in sun valley on a foggy day which was a real highlight. In terms of the the lifts we found them to be good quality overall and they make it easy to transition between runs. If you want an amazing skiing holiday Shiga kogen is the place to come!

Shiga kogen is a very good ski area, it has a lot of terrain and is good for all levels of skiing and boarding. I would give the area a five if some of the connections between each resort didn’t mean you had to do a short pole. The fact that most of the resorts are accessible by skiing is very handy, if your legs are tried then there is always the shuttle bus. The shuttle bus comes every hour or so and there is a timetable in one of the maps. There is so much terrain and would recommend it to anyone coming to Japan.

Staying at the Prince Hotel (East Wing) was the perfect location for our Ski in Ski out holiday. Shiga Kogen has so much terrain on offer with the majority of the resorts connected and can be skied on an all mountain pass. The Shiga area is ideal for intermediate and beginner skiers. I have skied at Hakuba, and Niseko and have now put Shiga Kogen on my list of return Japanese ski destinations.

We visited in early April and although some lifts and food outlets had closed, there was no queues and the snow was great. Excellent variety of runs, well groomed and some ungroomed.
