2nd Ski Trip - Feb 18 to 20th 2011
« on: January 24, 2011, 01:32:59 AM »
***** Places will be allocated based on how quickly I receive your RSVP. A full RSVP is required although minor details can be adjusted later*****


What: Skiing and snowboarding in Nagano
When: February 18th -20st 2011
Where: Aqua Alpine hotel / Hakuba Goryu Resort http://www.aquaalpine.com/
How much:  19,000yen (2day pass),  16,500 - (1 day pass), 14,000yen (No pass)

The February Ski trip will be generally of the same format as the January trip. So for those who did not go on it, click the link for the full explanation of the ski trip.
http://www.yetijapan.com/forum/index.php?topic=7541.0

The main differences are that we are staying at the Aqua Alpine hotel which is a 4 Star hotel.  A few of you have already been there, so will know how sweet it is and it is only a few minutes walk from the slopes.
To keep costs down, the double and triple rooms downstairs will have extra futons put in to make them like a ryokan. We have the whole bottom floor to ourselves which is pretty sweet but we are limited to 30 people. After the initial 30, accomadation will be at Lady Diana's as at the January trip. There are no Double/Quad/Single night options at Aqua Alpine but if we use Lady Diana, they may become an option.
The package includes 2 nights accommodation, 2 breakfasts, dinner on Saturday night.
For those that want to try the other resorts, I can't offer discounted passes for them. You will have to bear those costs yourself.
There is no party room at the hotel, however we can use the facilities of the hotel including the lounge, bar and pool room. The bar will run happy hour for us all weekend.

I am using the same rental company as before, so the prices are.
                    Ski/Board + Boots - 1800/2800yen for one/two days
                    Ski/Board trousers and jacket - 1800/2800yen for one/two days
                    Goggles  - 500/1000yen for one/two days
                    Gloves  - 500/1000yen for one/two days

I will again arrange transportation from  Kofu and the Fujiyoshida/Otsuki area depending on demand. For those driving, directions are attached to this post (need rewriting...so attaching in a few days).

For lessons, I have a provisional  booking for one ski instructor and one snowboarding instructor for 5250 yen per person but I need a minimum of 6 people per group to make it happen for that price. If we have 7 and 5, that works too. If we fall below these numbers, I will look into alternatives.

That is about it really. All I need from you is an RSVP in this format

1. Name :
2. What package i.e. 2 nights and 2 day pass
3. Gear Rental : Yes / no ?
    if yes please say what : (skis or board / boots / clothing )

    Height: **cm (if you require board / skis )
    Clothes sizes – if you know them in Japanese sizes.
    Gloves/Goggles ?
4. Transport: required / not required / got a lift / going in the vans.
    If you are taking a van, Kofu or Fujiyoshida/Otuski departure ?
5. Other Information: (vegetarian meals required etc,)
6. Lessons? Boarding or Skiing? What level are you?

The March trip is up in the air. It depends a lot on the weather so it may/may not happen.
