Gear­ing up for win­ter in Ja­pan

Action Asia - - REAL DEALS -

JA­PAN’S RECORD-SET­TING SNOW­FALL IS the stuff of dreams and no bucket list is com­plete with­out a trip to the land of the ris­ing sun – and ris­ing snow lev­els! Choos­ing a re­sort can be a co­nun­drum with such a wealth of op­tions across Hon­shu and the north­ern is­land of Hokkaido. The gen­eral rule of thumb though is that for longer runs and steeper con­di­tions, Hon­shu’s re­sorts are the way to go; for bot­tom­less pow­der and un­tracked ter­rain then Hokkaido is the ticket. Ei­ther way there’s world-class facilti­ties on-slope, and a wide range of ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions off it, from tower ho­tels to ryokens, con­dos to chalets. Throw in the de­li­cious lo­cal food and drink and you have the mak­ings of an epic win­ter trip. In the lead-up to the 2018 sea­son, Ja­pan snow spe­cial­ist Sk­i­ has re­leased a num­ber of ac­com­mo­da­tion dis­counts and travel pack­age op­tions across the coun­try’s lead­ing re­sorts. Whether you’re a fam­ily look­ing for fun and lessons to suit all ages, a cou­ple look­ing for a lux­ury re­treat, or a group of friends seek­ing an ac­tion-packed ad­ven­ture on a bud­get, the team at Sk­i­ can tai­lor a pack­age for ev­ery need. From their ori­gins in the pow­der cap­i­tal of Niseko, t hey’ve now put down roots in Hakuba too where you can en­joy the same tour and ser vice desks, in-re­sort trans­fers, rental and re­tail gear op­tions, and range of ac­com­mo­da­tion. Get st a r ted wit h 10% of f t he Hakuba Gate­way Ho­tel, or 15% off se­lected Niseko ac­com­mo­da­tion. Book direct on­line at www. Sk­i­
