Yes, ladies, that’s right! Girls Do Ski is heading on a ski touring and lift assisted ski vacation to Hakuba, Japan, January 4-10th. The catch is we want you to join us to do some of the deepest powder skiing you’ve EVER done. Japan is a place where the snowbanks grow like chia pets, ramen becomes your favorite apres ski meal, and bathing in onsens rejuvenates the soul.
We’ve partnered with Whitecap Alpine, the ACMG guiding experts in Hakuba, Japan, to guide us to all the secret local spots. The Hakuba Valley, close to the home of the ’98 Olympics in Nagano, is stocked with 10 different resorts that we’ll have access to including Tsugaike-Kogen, Norikura, Cortina, Happo-one, Hakuba 47, Goryu. Our very own GDS founder and professional skier, Leah Evans, will be your private coach. The camp will be open to six guests only, making the experience personal, educational, comfortable, and obviously a blast. We will guide you through local Japanese customs, making sure that we stop to enjoy the beautiful things the country has to offer on and off the snow.
We ask that everyone flies into the Narita airport on January 4th where you will be picked up, we’ll ski from the 5th-9th, and put our skis back in our roller bags to go home on the 10th. We’ve outlined below what will be included:
Private guiding by ACMG ski guide
Exclusive coaching from professional skier and GDS founder Leah Evans
Luxury accommodations in private Morino Lodge Chalet
Breakfast and Lunches
Visiting literal local hot spots i.e. onsens
Riding video feedback
You get to watch a lot of movies on the plane! As airfare is not included in our package we will let you book flights that work for you. We suggest if you’re flying from Vancouver to check out Air Canada 003 from YVR and Air Canada 004 from Narita to YVR. Don’t hesitate to ask for more info on how to book the right flights!
Once you’ve landed we will have a private shuttle (yes, your name will be on a sign). The shuttle will take about 5 hours to get to our private Chalet so you will have some time to take in the sights of Japan or catch up on some sleep; cost is 165CND. Because we never like going the same way we came, you will return via the bullet train which is around $90CND. We wanted to let you know the price as everyone will pay for this transportation in person but the shuttles will be arranged for you.
$3,400.00 taxes not applied
