Skiing in Niigata
Niigata prefecture has a number of popular resorts for skiing and relaxing at spas. Transportation to and from these places is either by train, car, or both.
I've heard the best places for skiing are at Naeba, Akakura, Kaguramistumata.
However, I've only been to Tainai and Ishiuchi.
