11 night package with 8 days coaching & 2 days sight seeing
Road trip in Nagano Prefecture, Japan
Having more ski resorts than any other country, it’s quite surprising that until a decade or so ago, Japanese ski hills received little attention and remained relatively undiscovered by most western shredders. Now, after a few ski & board movies put Japan in the lime light, the secret is out and you have undoubtedly heard countless stories of its legendary neck deep powder.
It’s true the skiing is great and we all love powder. There’s no doubt about that! But in Japan, the ridiculous snow fall is only a small part of the experience.
On our Snow Ninja tour, not only will you be shralping pow and technique geeking it out with Section 8 coaches on some of Japan’s best slopes… but you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the uniqueness of the ultra friendly and often a little quirky Japanese culture.
We’ll be heading to resorts slightly off the beaten path in search of authentic Japan. Beggining the adventure in the epicentre of the Japanse Alps, surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of the Hakuba Valley, we’ll then move on to the more traditional ground of Nozawa Onsen to fully unwind. Along the way we’ll stay in traditional Japanese Ryokan’s, eat what has to be the world’s most delicious and elegantly presented food, and spend plenty of time soaking our tired limbs in soothing onsens (traditional Japanese hot springs).
If skiing in Japan has been on your tick list, then perhaps it’s time to finally discover it for yourself… and you might as well do it in Section 8 style!

Japanese skiing is fantastic… but with such a rich traditional culture and amazing landscapes, a day off snow just might be the most memorable part your trip!
