How did we get to the end of January already? February is just around the corner and it feels as if winter is just beginning.
February should be mid-winter so lots of snow. It is also the month when some of the most interesting festivals are on. For a list of some of the best check out this post on the Snow Country blog with details of the Tokamachi Snow Festival, dousing bridegrooms with icy water, competitive snowball fights and other events in the region.
If you are heading this way for Chinese New Year, please note that it is likely to be quite a busy period for most ski schools in the region. We still have availability for English speaking ski and snowboard instructors and coaches for most dates over the holidays.
