Shiga Kogen Ski Resort - Central Area

Comprising approximately 50 ski runs serviced by 30 chairlifts and 1 gondola, Shiga Kogen’s Central Area is by itself larger than most Japanese resorts and your gateway to the entire resort. With the greatest concentration of accommodation, restaurants and bars, and services including ski school and rental, currency exchange and a medical facility, the ski fields of the Central Area are the ideal to base yourself when coming to Shiga Kogen.
The Central Area-only day pass (JPY4900) covers all 50 courses – with an approximate division of 50% beginner, 35% intermediate, and 15% advanced – across the many ski areas that make up this expansive area which caters for all levels of skiers and boarders. Consisting of the smaller Sun Valley, Giant and Ichinose Ski Areas, the expansive Central Area was a host venue for the 1998 Winter Olympics.
