    Ski/snowboard rental gear experiences

    I feel there are less of the 'by the side of the road' places than there used to be. And also, there's more high quality gear available to rent... at a price of course. And especially in the inbound boom places (Niseko, Hakuba, etc). Some of the cheaper almost retro like stuff on offer is kind of amusing. Then again > do you need the latest gear if you are a complete beginner?

    Is Nagano city a good place to stay...

    Personally I'd stay in Hakuba for Hakuba and then maybe Myoko for the others. And maybe spend a day or two in Nagano at either end or in the middle. Or something like that.

    Arai - any busier during the 18/19 season?

    They're pricing me out, that's for sure!

    Best ski (day) trip from Nagoya?

    I have friends in Nagoya and they mostly head north into Gifu to the skijo in Gujo. Dynaland, Takasu, Washigatake come to mind.
  5. I have been to Hakuba 6 times this season. Yesterday was easily the best of those 6 times!!! The others have ranged from very disappointing to fairly decent.
  6. Okushiga Kogen was skiers only until 3 seasons ago I think. I think now that means that there are no skiers-only parts of Shiga Kogen. Correct me if I'm wrong anyone.

    Hakuba Goryu or Hakuba 47?

    I prefer 47. Reasons: I prefer that part of the mountain and spend more time on that side. Seems less busy too when I have been and I have always been able to part fairly close to base and get going quickly.
