Shiga Kogen Ski Resort

The largest ski resort in Japan

As a host of 1998 Nagano Winter Olympic Giant Slalom and Paralympic events, there is no denying that Shiga Kogen is a world class winter sports area. Consisting of 21 ski fields and about 70 lifts, gondolas, ropeways and tows, Shiga Kogen is by far the largest ski resort in Japan. With merely one IC lift pass, all 21 interlinked ski fields beckon, offering you with the largest winter playground imaginable. Spend days attempting to cover the entire expanse that is the Shiga Kogen resort.

Shiga Kogen is the biggest ski area in Japan, and it has 18 connected ski resorts. The ski areas stretch across in size from a height of 1340m to 2307m with 51 lifts and gondolas. All of the Shiga Kogen ski areas are functionally connected by a shuttle bus service. Given its altitude there is a long season covering the period from the middle/end of November to the near the end of May. This area is also popular for Snow Monkey watching.
