Shiga Kogen Spring Packages: Enjoy Nagano’s Longest Ski Season!

grand-phenix-zuica

Located only 70 minutes to the west of Nagano City and 5 hours to the north-east of Tokyo, Shiga Kogen lays claim to being Japan’s largest and highest ski resort. Sitting between 1330 to 2307 metres above sea level, Shiga is not only substantially higher than any other resort but thanks to its inland location, it also enjoys Nagano’s most reliable snowfall. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that Shiga Kogen Ski Resort enjoys Nagano’s longest season with higher areas opening as early as November and staying open late into April or even May. On this page you will find the following information:
