Reopening of Japanese resort on the main island of Honshu
SkiJapan.com has teamed up with an Australian Snowsports Direct who has been selected to operate an International Ski School at the Lotte Arai Resort that's re-opening mid-December.
Tom Langtry is very excited with the reopening of the ski area (previously known as Arai Mountain Resort and Spa) after it was closed for more than 11 years. It's very close to his Snowsports School at Myoko Kogen where he employs in structors from about seven or eight different countries.
An extension of the main train route from Tokyo via Nagano is another plus for Australian skiers and snowboarders seeking an alternative to the popular snow resorts on the main island of Honshu. The Joetsu-Myoko Station is about a 15 minute Free shuttle to the Lotto Arai Resort.
Another addition to the resort’s attributes is an expansion of non-groomed inbound terrain that offers superb opportunities to schuss untracked powder Japan is so famous for.
SkiJapan.com is offering packages at The Arai (149 rooms) and The Lodge (108 rooms) two key properties at Lotte Arai Resort from $2,094 per person from 13 January. Package includes seven nights accommodation, a six-day ski pass and five days JR East Rail Pass.
Tom Langtry's International Snowsports School will provide a Free fifth full day private (value about $625) if four previous days are booked. Or for kids, a fifth day will be Free (value about $150), if four previous days are bought.
