First of all…I myself am not a skier (tried it once when I was a teenager and enjoyed it, not done it since). My partner and her son (9yo) have been skiing annually now for the past couple of years in Thredbo and are relatively new to the sport I guess.
As a family holiday, we are looking at heading off to Japan for a week in Jan but are not sure of where to head.
We have had suggestions to look at both Furano (New a Prince Hotel) as well as Hakuba as good 'beginner' ski locations. Is there anywhere else in Japan we should be considering ?
We are attracted to the quieter locations, particularly with a child, so definitely wouldn't consider the heavier traffic locations.
Any suggestions appreciated.
