Know before you go
Those booking early in the season should be aware that unlike in places like Europe and Australia, where due to marginal snow conditions snow guns allow some Resorts to offer limited snow from the very first day - Japanese resorts do not typically have snowmaking - so these dates should be noted as the planned opening time subject to the first big powder dump.
Amon is our Japan Marketing Manager - having joined the team in late 2022 after 5 years experience in the Australian ski and tourism industry - Amon enjoys hiking, camping and snowboarding badly.
