Shiga Kogen Long Weekend 3

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! The Shiga Kogen snow monkeys are a definite must see and we will be visiting the monkey onsen on the Monday (national holiday) of the trip. The snow monkeys have lived in the Shiga Kogen area for several generations and come down from the mountains each day to bath in the natural hot springs at the base. We will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the hot spring bathing monkeys in their natural habitat.

The long weekend is peak powder time with huge overnight snowfalls the norm. Last seasons trip saw over a metre fall within 24 hours! Our hotel for the trip is right on the slopes, only 1min walk/ski from the ski lifts and features a 100% natural hot spring. This long weekend trip also features free lessons for beginner skiiers & snowboarders from qualified, english speaking instructors and two fun parties/music events on both nights, with DJs, giveaways and more. Powder, onsens, snow monkeys and partying at Japans biggest resort - cant wait!
