Ski & Snowboard Rental
For a beginner it is probably best to hire equipment; if you buy equipment straightaway you quickly outgrow it as your skiing level improves. Wait until you have done a few weeks skiing or boarding and make sure that this is a sport you will practice regularly, and then consider buying. Here we have listed the top Ski & Snowboard Rental Stores in Hakuba>>
Ski & Snowboard Schools
Anyone can benefit from having lessons and it is the best way to improve and get more out of your time on the mountain. It is essential for beginners to have correct instruction for the first week or two and group lessons are a great way to learn. You are grouped according to ability (and age for children), so everyone is in the same boat and most people remember their first weeks at ski school as being great fun! Here you can find details of all local Ski & Snowboard Schools.
