Default Shiga Kogen for Beginners

Hey all,

I'm trying to plan a trip for myself and 4 of my buddies to Japan for Jan '15.

We have been snowboarding only once before, 5 days at Niseko. Most of us can snowboard down greens and most reds, but one of us has never snowboarded before.

We are thinking of hitting up someplace else. What are your thoughts on Shiga Kogen as a resort for beginners? What are the runs like there?

Ive never been there but I will be next season for sure. There are some areas that are skier only supposedly due flat/uphill sections. The base elevation is higher than most japanese resorts so it might be a bit colder.
All in all I think you will be fine, if not try nozawa or myoko as they are pretty close by
