Tsugaike is just one ski area in the Otari valley. Within the valley and Neighboring Hakuba Valley you will find a true skiing region with lots of easily accessible resorts.
“As close to a true ski town as one can get in Japan”
Tsugaike can be considered part of the Hakuba Valley, it is a 10 minute bus ride form the busier skier's hub of Hakuba. Tsugaike however, is part of the Otari Valley and this little distinction seems to uphold a more local feel on the mountain and in town. Tsugaike is a quieter alternative to Hakuba, and therefore cheaper as well, but you are still wedged between many quality ski ares, Tsugaikekogen being one of the best.
This area is in the Northern Japanese Alps and here the mountains get big and backcountry options are plentiful. It is also well known that as you travel north up the valley from Hakuba, the storm's snow total increases. This is why Tsugaike is the place to be after the big storms, where the snow is deeper and the bigger faces around Hakuba are still loaded and sliding.
Tsugaike is a perfect base to access the greater area and explore the Japanese Alps.
