Ski holidays in Japan

Skiing in Japan offers one of the most incredible experiences in the world because it is renowned for its waist deep, dry and light powder snow. With the slopes much quieter than you would find in Europe, it means that you can enjoy fresh untracked powder on wide intermediate runs throughout the entire day. Then, if your legs can still take it, you can continue on until 9pm each night on the strongly floodlit slopes to find out what night skiing really is about.

With high quality ski in/out accommodation, excellent food and an interesting and lively nightlife to add to one of the best skiing experiences in the world; Japan is a superb alternative to your ‘normal’ ski destination.
