The Shiga Kogen Resort in Nagano Japan is a good all-rounder as a ski holiday destination. It first gained international notoriety when it hosted various events at the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics, including the women’s downhill, slalom, super G and snowboarding events. Since that time many other skiers and snowboarders have flocked to the Shiga Kogen ski resorts to get a taste of what this area has to offer. 

Shiga Kogen provides a large variety of ski and snowboard terrain, and quality snow because it’s the second highest ski resort in Japan. It’s not called Shiga Heights for nothing (Kogen means heights or highlands)! [Powder Hounds].
