Weekend trip to Japans largest ski resort for powder, snow monkeys, hot springs and apres ski fun!


Shiga Kogen is by far Japans biggest ski resort area with over 20 interconnected ski resorts all accessible with the one lift pass. The high altitude means consistently great snow conditions and with over 80kms of courses and 70 lifts the resort is great for all levels of skiier/boarder. Shiga Kogen is also famous for the onsen bathing snow monkeys!

Having the highest altitude on-piste slopes in Japan, Shiga Kogen has a super long season staying open well into May.

As well as being a great ski resort, Shiga Kogen is a designated national park with beautiful forest and mountain trails. There is an option for this weekend to take part in a snowshoe hike to experience more of the scenic beauty of the area. The cost of the 1 day snowshoe hike is 4000yen and includes snowshoe & poles rental as well as insurance. If you want to do this on the Saturday then the cost is free as we do not need to buy you a lift pass. Please make a note on the booking form when you sign up if interested.
