I'm headed to Tokyo in mid-February. I've been to Japan many times, and I've skied Niseko before. I'm thinking a day or so skiing at Nagano would be a nice side-trip from Tokyo. Any recommendations?
Used to ski at Happo-One, Hakuba Goryu, and Hakuba Cortina all in the same valley up there. Quite good. I heard that Nozawa Onsen is a great place to go - I would head there.
