We’ve found the best value multi resort lift pass offer in Japan and it includes some of the country’s best powder snow fields.
The Shinetsu Shizenkyo Super Value Ticket is five tickets in one with your choice of 21 resorts. It will set you back 23 000 Yen (around AUD $300) and you can use all five tickets yourself or share them with friends. Either way it works out to be around AUD $60 per ski day with some added extras thrown in.
Each ticket can be redeemed for any number of unique offers from individual resorts and you can use the tickets for one resort or mix it up.
Claim your pass at Seki Onsen and you’ll get a meal plus drink with your day’s skiing. Heading to Myoko Ski Park, you’ll get 2 adult passes on the one ticket, at Madarao it’s a free meal and at Togari you get access to the hot springs.
Choose from some of Australia’s most favourite Japan resorts in the region – the freeride Mecca that is Lotte Arai, the old world charm of Seki Onsen, the feudal town of Nozawa Onsen, the tree skiing that is Madarao Kogen and a plethora of resorts within the region.
Did we mention Kyukamura Myoko Runrun Ski Resort, Myoko Ski park, Akakura Onsen, Akakura Kanko, Ikenotaira Onsen Ski Resort, Myoko Suginohara, Kurohime Kogen Snow Park, Iizuna Resort Ski Area, Tangram Circus, Togari Onsen, Sakae Club and Kitashinshu Kijimadaira Ski Resort, X-Jam Takaifuji, Yomase Onsen, Kita Shiga, Ryuo Ski Park and the largest ski resort in Japan, Shiga Kogen?
That’s a lot of snow bang for your Yen right there with a mix of lesser known heritage resorts, family friendly areas and big guns so you can stick mainstream or go further afield.
But you’ll need to be quick as there’s only 1500 books of 5 tickets per book on offer and a limit of 5 books per person. If you get your hands on a book then you’ll have to use it the tickets by March 31.
Given that Honshu has just got powder this week, then the timing may just be perfect.
