01 Sep September 2022 Update
So we have hit September and the high summer temperatures are starting to dial back a little.
Unfortunately border restrictions are still in place. They did get eased slightly in the last couple of days but international tourists still need to be on a package tour booked with one of the official travel agents. We are hoping that this changes before winter arrives but it is still a case of “wait and see”. The past two years have seen bumper snowfalls, and early indications are promising another cold winter, so we hope our friends from overseas can join us on the slopes.
If you are looking for updates on the border situation Snow Japan are keeping an eye on things and posting on this page when there are changes.
With the summer holidays finished in Japan people will start to turn their minds towards winter now so we can expect a bit more news on that front in the coming months. A couple of lift ticket price rises seem on the cards at some resorts….
If you need any information about Yuzawa or skiing and snowboarding in Japan, please get in touch. Our team of ski and snowboard instructors are still here and looking forward to welcoming back to the local resorts of Yuzawa and Minami Uonuma as soon as the snow arrives and the lifts start moving!
