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 imagine this is one of the best places to satisfy whole family members including three years old.
Date visited: From 06 March, 2005
Snow condition on visit: Fresh powdery, fantastic soft snow
Things I liked: Not crowded at all even on a Sunday. Good snow. tranquil atmospher, no snowborder allowed. Sorry for boaders!
Things I didn't like: Bottom half is flat.
