For those who are more Nordic-ally inclined, the Maeyama Cross Country skiing course located within the village of Tsugaike is a fantastic place to train or experience this demanding and rewarding sport for the first time. A loop of the full course measures in at 5 km, while smaller loops offer 1 km and 2.5 km options. The Maeyama course is free to use and complete with parking and restroom facilities, and is generally groomed and open from mid-January to mid-March, depending on snow conditions. Nearby Uchikawa Sports has cross country ski sets available for hire.
