Eyeball surf report
  1. Banner  3Nozawa Holidays The coldest morning temperatures I can remember are current on the Yamabiko weather station, recording -12c before windchill. For comparisons sake, a normal cold weather temperature for the 8am Yamabiko reading is consistently -7/-8c. Today is much colder than normal with air streaming straight down from the arctic. There are also strong winds up high so when windchill is factored in the apparent temperature will be more like -20/-25c. Therefore if you value your core body temperature maybe add another layer or two today. Thats not to say don’t go riding as the snow conditions are supreme, ...

Visitor Reviews of Shiga Kogen-Sun Valley

Shay O'Neill from Australia writes:

Stayed at Villa Alpen (Shiga Kogen Sun Valley): very friendly. The resort, however, is on the edge of Shiga Kogen and takes about 2 hours in lifts to reach the other side.
Sun Valley is more suited for beginner/intermediate.
Great for kids and wide open slopes.
Not many place to buy food. More options for resturants at Ichonise family ski runs.
Overall, Shiga Kogen (Shiga Kogen Sun Valley) is a huge place and just great!!!
