Japan Pt 2 | Snowboarding in Hakuba

I’ve always wanted to travel to Japan, the fact that it has the most amazing ski slopes and snow in the world is an added bonus. 

We stayed at The Mt Hakuba Backpackers for a week in Hakuba. We got a package deal with the lodge including, breakfast, dinner and daily ski lift passes (a daily lift pass is around $65-70 a day).

IMG_4400I suggest getting to the ski resorts as early as possible to enjoy fresh lines which, was one of the best parts of our trip. Fresh lines, perfectly groomed runs and unreal backcountry. IMG_436219850746_1224865034290285_2012188933_oThe alpine scenery was breathtaking. In short, it was an experience of a lifetime.

IMG_4451IMG_4427We also experienced a range of different ski lifts that included one seaters with no safety bar and hooded chair lifts, mind your head!

Once we left Hakuba we travelled to Mt Fuji, where Tarren popped the question. Stay tuned for the next instalment!
