February…time to hit the slopes again! GGB headed to Sugadaira, Nagano, from 9th - 11th for a nice lil’ getaway from Tokyo.
It was the first time going here but it didn’t disappoint!
The town was quaint and sleepy, but the slopes plentiful! It wasn’t packed despite being a 3 day weekend…which was nice :) Another upside was that most of the people were there were skiers…and skiers don’t like powder apparently. So it was nice and fresh and deep for us! Snow Pow! Woo!
Evening 1 we went on a nice night walk to the conbini (about 30 mins walk away) but the conditions were awesome for a night stroll. Well…it was freezing of course…
Day 2 consisted of lots of woodland courses and drinking with random Japanese peeps. We even got to play little blackjack with them!
Day 3 we hit the bigger slopes and saw some mad views. Preeeeetty beautiful
Overall, I would definitely recommend Sugadaira and I would happily go again.
It was really affordable (just 27,000 for 3 days for rental, accommodation (including dinner and breakfast) lift tickets and transport using this site ——> Ski Ichiba!), not so busy, not so far from Tokyo, and the slopes were good.
Super enjoyable GGB Snowbo trip :)
Get out to the slopes peeps before the season comes to an end!
