We finished up our last day in Nagano prefecture by going skiing in the Shiga Kogen area. It’s very close to where the 1998 Winter Olympics were held, was lightly snowing all day but still very visible, and the best part? There were NO people. Apparently last weekend was a big holiday weekend so everyone spent their money getting out and skiing then. We no more than 2 – 3 people on the same run as us most of the time, and there were some runs where we were alone.
