Japan Ski Hire

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am going to Shiga Kogen and Nosawa Onsen for a couple of weeks in Jan/Feb 2014. I was originally going to rent skis but have been having second thoughts as I have heard the quality/range/choice  is generally pretty limited. Looking at the rental prices on line even two weeks rental of best quality ski is likely to cost around $ 600. This is nearly enough to buy a new pair of skis and take them with me ( I have room in my flight luggage allowance ).

Any advice on the hire ski situation in either of these places would be appreciated.

Thanks Mike

Bring your own if you can rentals are expensive here.

we where in Shiga Kogen in 2011, took our own ski's, the choice in the shops seemed limited, also if your tall you may struggle to get the right length

Flywalker, Radar, Thanks for the replies. I would bring my own skis but that looks like being just too difficult. Guess I will have to take what I can get.

What's your height/weight/ability? I may have something for you.
