Thank you for the above advice. I have looked at Kagura and Shiga Kogen and they both look great. I am coming with my family from Australia and will have no snow gear at all. Are we able to hire everything we need at the resorts? Are there packages with everything included, ie ski clothes, skis and lift ticket? Any idea of the cost? Thankyou. Lise
