Shiga Kogen Snow Monkey Powder Weekend

Next Trip: Jan 29, 2021


Shiga Kogen is by far Japan's biggest ski resort area with 18 interconnected ski resorts all accessible with the one lift pass. The high altitude brings 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 hot spring bathing snow monkeys! An optional visit to see these monkeys is included in the price of the trip.

Our hotel is right in front of the slopes and we will have a fun party event on the Saturday evening of the trip. Powder, onsens, snow monkeys and partying at Japan's biggest snow resort - cant wait!
