|The very best deals you will find for your Nagano Ski Vacation||
The three big resorts in Nagano Prefecture, Japan, offer some of the best snow fun on the planet.
And while each is truly Japanese in nature, all have their own special qualities.
Hakuba is a long valley, with 8 major resorts sitting on the mountains that rise to the west of the main village. It is a one resort per day ski area, with the bigger ski areas requiring several days to sample the whole field. Ski in/ Ski Out accommodation is limited, and can actually be a hindrance, as much of the night time action takes place away from the slopes.
Shiga Kogen is a massive interconnected resort, with over 90 lifts, all accessible on one ticket. Most accommodation is ski in / ski out. Guests will need at least 4 days to cover the whole resort. The resort is very spread out and there is no wining and dining center.
Nozawa Onsen is a small hot spring village at the base of Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort. It offers the traditions of Japanese Onsen (Hot Springs), with world class skiing. There are also plenty of small Japanese bars and restaurants in the village, making for a truly memorable vacation.
