We hope you will join us this Holiday Season in Tahoe to improve your turns, or for some guided backcountry skiing, or just to say hi…and we hope you’ll keep doing your snow dance and sleeping with a spoon under your pillow (or wash your car). It all helps placate the snow gods! The resorts are OPEN, and the skiing is good!
But there is more snow in Niseko, Japan Dec 24 than the last 21 years! It’s a HUGE season in Niseko already, come ski powder with us Feb 23-March 3!
The travel from the west coast is about like going to Europe for a ski week, not bad! You’ll fly into Sapporo, shuttle 1.5 hours to the resort (which is actually 4 huge, very modern resorts), go to sleep, get up and SKI! You will ski powder, guaranteed! The storms blast this northernmost island (Hokkaido) practically nightly. We stay in a lovely hotel in the center of the base village, with beautiful rooms, outdoor bathes, and breath-taking view of Mt Yotai.
This is NASTC’s 4th visit to this land of the rising sun and endless pow….a perfect training venue for advanced and expert skiers!
During the week you will be treated to a variety of restaurants, sampling all sorts of Japanese cuisine and experiences.
Imagine a day of ripping through fresh snow, followed by a soak in a traditional onsen (hot spring bath) watching the steam rise as snowflakes fall gently around you and dinner in a cozy traditional Japanese restaurant with sushi, steamy bowls of ramen, Japanese mixed grill and sake to fill your belly.
After the clinic, consider touring Sapporo for a day, home of the Olympics AND the beer factory (yes, free tasting room). The dollar is strong right now in Japan, make this your year to go and save money.
