It has been a busy season so far. We've been giving lots of lessons, skiing, snowshoeing, travelling, snow shovelling, and doing more snow shovelling. 6 days of non-stop snow was great to ski in, but not quite as much fun to keep moving out of the car park and off the roof!
We have had a lot of families come through our ski and snowboard lessons this year and several have mentioned that they wish they had found out a bit more information about this area before they had come. This is a great place for your first snow experience, but many people spend lots of time and effort narrowing down this area from some of the other options available across Japan. Hakuba, Niseko, Nozawa Onsen, Shiga Kogen, Myoko, Karuizawa are all place that people consider.
We are happy to point you in the right direction if you are looking to book a trip to the snow to introduce your family to the fun of snowsports, or just messing around in the white stuff. Yuzawa and the surrounding region has some good value accommodation packages, incredibly easy access from Tokyo, great value equipment rental, and of course some awesome multi-lingual ski and snowboard coaches.
Questions about what to wear, what to bring, what to buy, where to ski, where to stay, where to buy lift passes, etc are all common, and we can help you answer all of those so that you have the best and simplest experience possible. Our core business is teaching people how to ski and snowboard in Japan, so the information we are giving out on resorts and accommodation is our honest opinion of what is best. It is often backed up by what our customers tell us too.
If you are looking for fun in the snow this winter, friendly locals, and great food, without having to travel long distances, or break the bank, Yuzawa has you covered.
