Japan has become well known for sidecountry and backcountry powder skiing in recent years and for a good reason. Moisture laden air from the Sea of Japan moves eastwards and is forced up and over the Japanese Alps causing the air to cool and snow to fall. And it dumps there like nothing you’ve ever seen. The Nagano resorts report an average of 600 inches (15m) while the Hokkaido region have reported 1500 inches (38m) in one season which is ten times a good European season!!!
For Europeans, visiting Japan is not just about skiing but a unique cultural experience immersing yourself in the ancient ways and belief, indulging in fresh sushi and relaxing in their natural onsen hot springs.
Travelling in Japan is easy and makes Switzerland look disorganised. For the south island we fly into Tokyo, take the train to Tokyo station and then hop on the Shinkansen Bullet Train and connect to the resort by bus. For Hokkaido either fly to Sapporo or take the new bullet train from Tokyo.
