Niigata prefecture faces the Sea of Japan. In the winter, wet clouds come from the Sea of Japan side, hit the mountains and let the snow fall. So the mountain side of Niigata prefecture is known as a heavy snowfall area. On the mountain side of Niigata prefecture there are huge ski resorts such as Naeba, Jyoetsu Kokusai and so on. You can easily go there from the Tokyo station by Joetsu Shinkansen. The snow quality is slightly damper than Hakuba and Niseko.
