Ski & Snowboard Rental in Yuzawa

Ski & Snowboard Rental in Yuzawa

[This article was written in 2019 so prices are no longer current.]

The consumption tax rise on October 1st 2019 has brought a few price changes around town, so we thought we would update our information on the local rental shops.

You can rent ski wear and equipment from some hotels, all resorts, and there are also some independent rental shops in the centre of Yuzawa. They tend to offer a free return shuttle service between the station or your hotel and some of the local resorts (usually the ones closer to Echigo-Yuzawa Station. N.B. Maiko, Tashiro, & Naeba are normally considered too far.) The price is very competitive though some of the resort rental shops may have newer equipment. There is no best choice for everybody so definitely shop around. If you are looking for higher level equipment, or particular large sized boots (over 31cm) it might be best to contact in advance.

The free shuttle service is a big plus and makes getting around very easy, though please be aware that all the shops can get very busy during peak periods and the shuttle services may suffer some delays. If you have booked a ski or snowboard lesson with Snow Country Instructors and are meeting your coach at one of the resorts please keep this in mind. Arigatou!

Daishin Sports

Daishin Sports are located right next Yuzawa Kogen Ropeway Station. Their site is in Japanese but you can find the prices below. There is no need to book your gear in advance though if you want to take advantage of their pick up service they would need to know a time and place to collect you on your first day.
