I have stayed for five days now, and the skiing has been great. The hotel is at the end of the shiga kogan resort, and has 5 'skier only' chair lifts. The resort itself is ski-in ski-out but is isolated in so far as dining options for dinner is either a set menu at the hotel or a short walk across the car park to the grand Phoenix where al a carte options are available. Up side is the very friendly and helpful staff, older but comfortable and clean rooms. Ski in ski out, nice onsen, great skiing, a shuttle bus should you choose to snowboard. Downside is the food and drink bill might keep a small nations credit line running, but the quality is great.
Overall a uniquely Japanese experience in a big resort, that is just enough off the beaten track to lure me back again.
