With some of the most reliable snow any-where, Japan may be the Skiing World’s best-kept secret – the perfect place to combine some world-class skiing with an exotic vacation.
Japan offers stunning mountains vistas, kilometres of perfectly groomed runs at all levels of difficulty, along with gnarly mogul runs, snowboard parks, friendly locals and great food. There also great off-piste skiing, cross-country skiiing and snowshoeing, and let’s not forgot Japan’s incredible variety of hot springs baths (onsen) for that all-important apres-ski soak.
Japan’s best ski resorts are found in the Japan Alps regions of Central Honshu (Nagano & Niigata Prefecture) and on the northern island of Hokkaido. The former lays claim to the highest mountains, while the latter has the deepest and most regular snow. Both regions offer first-class skiing. If you’re interested in doing some sightseeing in cities, like Kyoto, Nara and Tokyo in addition to your skiing, you might consider hitting the resorts in the Japan Alps. If skiing is your main goal, then Hokkaido might be the best way to go.
