Shiga Kogen Nishitateyama review
Using two quads it was so easy to get to the top of Nishidateyama from where we could cruise down all the way to the bottom of the valley. Although the course isn't that long, since no dull flat section in between so every skill level had great fun.

Easy access to Ichinose from the top and to Giant and Higashitate from the bottom

Shiga Kogen Giant review by Highlandjin
This is the place where you practice high speed cruising skills since the plase is straight&wide from the top to bottom.

Good lift connection to transfer to Nishidate, Higashidate and other areas of vast Shiga-Kogen.

Shiga Kogen Higashitateyama review by Highlandjin
From the top of the gondola station (top of the Higashitateyama mountain) you will have breathtaking view of Japan alps so don't forget bringing a camera. This is the starting point of the Olympic womens'GS. It is fairly steep and long.

If you are intermeadiate skier you will find this course is quite challenging and you will love it.

You can also descend to Terakoya, Takamagahara and Ichinose areaa from the Godola station

Shiga Kogen Okushiga Kogen review by Highlandjin
North western tip of gigantic Shiga-Kogen. Easy access to Yakebitai and other ares of Shiga Kogen.

Okushiga slopes are facing east/north. So the snow conditon is generally very good and give you a fantastic view of Japan alps from the top. When we visited it was right after snow fall so the condition was really excellent with super blue skies.

Absolutely no queue for the lift/gondlas.

This is the place where the imperial family enjoy skiing. So you can
