  9. hi, me and 2 firends are going to japan for a long weekend snowboarding in late january. i have been looking a lot at shiga kogen and it looks awesome in terms of terrain - i love back country or challenging snowboarding and it seems shiga has the most variety (20 resorts). however reading a few things on here and other sites am wondering if its the place to go... accomodation seems expensive and limited and from what i have read it is quite family orientated. on the other hand, hakuba or nozawa seem to have decent hotels and nice towns, but the resorts dont seem to have as much variation?
