How do I get there?
By Car: (http://goo.gl/maps/vpZIF)

Most people will be travelling by car and carpooling is usually the cheapest option.
 
-Tolls one way are about 3,000yen from the Kofu area (differs according to area).
- For that old-school feel, please see attached files for directions from Yamanashi, Shizuoka and Nagoya. Directions from Chiba are not as detailed though.
- Check out this webcam on route 148 to see realtime weather conditions in the area.
http://www.snowjapan.com/japan-daily-snow-weather-reports/webcam-hakuba-roads-nagano
 
By Chartered Van / Bus.
 
For those who are not able to get rides, I will help organise transport. This depends on there being a valid-licence holding driver to drive the rental van.
 
Approximate costs:
- Vans from Kofu : 6500 yen round trip or 7500 from Fujiyoshida.
- For those outside Yamanashi, get in touch with your co-ordinators, otherwise myself to make arrangements.
 
By public transport?
Trains from Kofu:
Local :3000 yen one way, 5 hours (Get off at Kamishiro)
Express : 5400 yen one way, 3 hours (Get off at Hakuba)

- Shizuoka
Only expensive train options. Over 10,000yen one way! ShizAJET will be organising cheaper transport.
 
-Nagoya train
 Take an express from Nagoya station to Matsumoto and then a local towards Hakuba, getting off at Kamishiro. Price is approx 6500-7000 yen one way.
 
- Chiba/Tokyo buses (Straight to Hakuba Goryu) http://www.alpico.co.jp/access/express/hakuba_shinjuku/ (Timetable marked Timetable (Dec. 19, 2015 - Mar. 31, 2016))

If you have any questions, read the FAQ and if that doesn't cover it, then ask on here as there are bound to be more people who don't understand!
 
FAQ
 
Aaaaaaarrrrggggghhhh ! I want to come but I am working on Saturday!

Fret not. There is an option to stay on the Sunday and Monday. You will just have to get yourselves to Hakuba and I can sort everything out. If there is enough demand from a certain region i.e. Kofu, I can hire a van for the group. Don't forget that you can also stay on Monday, making it a 3-day weekend and enjoy the quieter slopes.
 
Aaaaaaarrrrggggghhhh ! I want to come but I am terrible at budgeting
Generally, I only take the money when you arrive at the hotel as it is easier for me to collect all the money in one place... well relatively. It also means that certain things can be changed on Friday night if we have the flexibility. However, if you cancel, you will be liable for those things that I have already paid for/ cannot get out of.
If you are having cash flow issues, just let me know and we'll work something out.
This year, a number of people have wanted to pay some/all the money upfront so that they can't spend it. If you want to take this option, you can furikomi the money to me. Just get in touch and I will send you my bank details.
 
Hold on? If I take nenkyuu, can I get in on this Monday option and have a 3 day trip?
Yep, you certainly can. It’ll just cost extra.
 
What is the accommodation like?
Rooms are ensuite ryokan style with heaters, towels, shampoo and body soap. Rooms are generally 5-9 people per room.
Lady Diana has separate sex onsens that will be open for the duration of the trip.
Double/Twin rooms are 3000 yen per room extra (i.e. 1500 per person) but are in limited supply. The one quad bedroom is 1000 yen per person extra.  Book early to avoid disappointment!

I’m interested in the Happo one passes. What’s the deal with that?

Hakuba Goryu/Iimori/47 and three interlinked skifields located about 7 mins walk from our hotel and the pass works on all of the lifts there. The lessons will be held at Iimori ski field.
Happo one is a ski field located about a 15min drive away. If you wish to go there, you’ll need to make sure that you have your own transport. I can do passes for Saturday or Saturday and Sunday, but not Sunday only. You’ll be given a voucher for your pass which is exchanged at Happo with a 500 yen deposit for the pass.
 
What is the sausage room/taco room?
AKA the boys room/girls room. As there are so many people coming from Yamanashi, some of the guys get their own room together, as do the girls. They are affectionately know as the Sausage room and Taco room.

Where do I get my rental equipment?
Your rental equipment will be delivered to the basement of St Georges hotel or outside Lady Diana in the morning and labelled for you. The prices are really low as the equipment is a few years old and will do the job for beginners and casual boarders/skiers. If you are serious about your snow sports and equipment, then you will need to go to the resort plaza and pay serious prices.
 
Here are sample prices
http://spicy.co.jp/en_price/
http://www.hakuba-rental.com/rental-prices-english.php
 
They are roughly 3800-6400/7000-11000 yen for 1day/2days for the good stuff.
 
What if it doesn’t fit?
As always, sizes aren't always exact. Try everything on in the morning and the rental guy(s) will be there to change things for you if need be. Please bear in mind that English may not be their first language. For those of you worried about being extra small/big, don’t worry! We have always been able to accommodate people at the far end of the scale.
 
Here are some conversion charts for you to help you.

I have my own coat and stuff. Is it good enough? Or do I go with the rental stuff?
I turn to my good friend Sachi for this…
“You don’t have to rent clothes. If you have a winter jacket, you'd hope it would protect you from snow which occurs in winter. The rental gear option is more for the people that are new to winter sports, or winter in general, that might not have winter equipment. Some ALTs come from tropical climates and would never need to buy useless heavy warm jackets that you might need in your home country. I had never seen snow before I came to Japan and the only time I saw my breath was when I was getting stuff from a freezer. If your gear can handle snow and cold, then there shouldn't be a problem.
 
Don’t forget you will fall over a bit, especially when you're learning, so I highly recommend you double check your shit is waterproof!
 
Sach”
 
I have my own equipment but I can't get it in the car.
Either find someone who can take it up for you, or Kuroneko's Ski Takkyubin delivery service is an option at under 3500 yen return trip for most people. You may need to buy their carrier at 240/500 yen.

The address to send it to is
Resort Hotel Lady Diana & St. Georges
22200-75, Kamishiro, Hakuba-mura, Kitaazumi-gun, NAGANO, JAPAN 399-9211
TEL: 0261-753 525
 
Do I need snow tyres? I have never driven in the snow
YES! You can drive on summer tyres if you want and I cannot stop you. However, depending on the weather, the police may be doing spot checks on the expressways and on the way to the ski fields. If you do not have snow tyres, then they will turn you back. This has been the case for three out of the last four years.
Additionally, should you have an accident on summer tyres your insurance will not cover you as someone found out four years back.
Chains are an alternative but best to have them on all four tyres.
If you are not experienced/confident about driving in the snow, just take it easy and be gentle with your braking, acceleration and steering. If cars behind you are pressurising you, then let them pass you.
 
Can I board one day and ski the other?
Of course. Just tell me which day for which, before the RSVP date and the prices will the same.
Changing your mind during the course of the trip may be a little tricky though.

What if I decide not to hit the slopes on the second day? Can I get a refund for my pass/equipment? How about adding an extra day.
If you can tell me ASAP about changes, the easier it is for me to change things. If you want to change things during the trip, it can be tricky. I will have paid for the passes and equipment by the time we are there. As a rule, it is easier to add things than to take them away. Whatever the case, I will do my best.

What if I need extra equipment such as bumpads?

There are shops in the Escal plaza at the bottom of Goryu ski field that can supply you with everything.

What about Luuuuuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnnncccccccccccchhhhhhh â„¢ ?
Lunch?  The ski fields all have a choice of restaurants including a Subway and a Mos Burger and also serve hot drinks and beer. Food ranges from tradition Japanese fare to western dishes too.
Pack enough money to cover your lunch and beverages.

I’ve never seen snow in my life… am I going to fail miserably?
Hells no! Even the pros had to learn somehow. There will always be a friendly face somewhere who will give you a few pointers. Everyone has a different learning curve and you will revel in the camaraderie.

Can I get lessons?
Yes! Three antipodean instructors are booked for Saturday morning, exclusively for beginners. If there is enough demand, afternoon lessons for intermediate and higher will be provided. Pick up is at 8.30am(provisionally) to take you to the bunny slope. SO DON’T GO ON YOUR OWN.  A few years ago, one person decided to go on their own and ended up at the wrong ski field. Please try your stuff early in the morning, before breakfast as it may take some time to change things.
The AM session will be from 9am to 12pm, PM from 1pm to 4pm. Please judge your level on a scale of 0-6 with 0 being total beginner and 6 being advanced when RSVPing. The classes may come down to majority rule.

I don’t really like big parties, what else is there to do on Saturday night?
Not everyone is into drinking and partying. Every year, some people hang out in the lobby upstairs or in their rooms and chat one-to-one or play games. One year, we even had a bible study session. There are options for everyone.


I want to come for the party but don’t want to be on the slopes, what do I do?

Snow penises, movies, knitting, p0rn, play boardgames, borrow a car and visit the beautiful scenery… the options are endless. Last year, 21 people came for the craic.
 
 
So RSVP people as soon as possible and give me as much info as possible. Any questions are welcome.

TL:DR

Same as last year. Only differences worth noting are...

1) All prices are the same
2) Two sittings for dinner, 5.30 and 6.30.
3) Happo one passes are available too. You just need your own transport there and back.
4) Kirby!

Ben -  Thanks! Hoodie or Polo? 5.30 or 6.30 dinner? I'm assuming that you'll be driving up with the tsuru peeps.

Andy - Thank you. I love the ski trip too! I am assuming that due to Emily's allergies, you'll be eating at 5.30pm.  Are goryu passes fine for you or would you like to go to Happo?

Kathy - I'll be chasing you up for those details later then! And you are more than welcome. I love organizing this trip!

Fred - Yes. 5:30 will be just fine :)  - - (Hopefully they won't try to give her a shrimp salad again).  I think Gory should be fine but I might want to do a day in Happo. Can I get back to you on that one later?

Hey Everyone,
I just wanted to give you an update on the event. We are currently sitting at 66RSVPs across all of the kens, which is a very healthy situation to be in. The double rooms are gone, but I am sourcing some more. The quad room is currently available.

Things are going well and fingers crossed that we’ll get oodles of snow soon. We will be fine in January, just December is looking a bit pants.

If you are interested in inviting friends from other kens, you are more than welcome to.
The ski trip actually has events in other prefectures, which you can point people to.

Tokyo - https://www.facebook.com/events/1527363440908265/ (Also serves Saitama, Kanagawa)
Ishikawa - https://www.facebook.com/events/1656985331206634/
Chiba - Let me know and I can invite your friend to the event
Gunma - https://www.facebook.com/events/541072286045911/
Shizuoka - https://www.facebook.com/events/992464100839214/

If you have friends coming from Tokyo, I have rented a bus for this trip and they are welcome to use it. As long as there are atleast 38 people on the bus, the price is going to be between 7700 and 8700 per person return. Pick up from Shinjuku on Friday 22nd Jan at 8pm and takes you straight to the door. Return will be Sunday, departure 4 or 5pm.

Thanks a lot everyone, I’m looking forward to a great trip.
