Hey all, Due to work constraints I am only just arranging a Honshu tourist/ski holiday now (November). I am used to snowboarding and lodging in Niseko Annupuri, however on this trip, I am bringing a beginner and we want to spend a bunch of time in Tokyo I decided to limit the scope of the trip to Honshu, which I am unfamiliar with. Flights are booked Perth-Tokyo for 30 Dec to 17th Jan. Now we are planning to spend a week in Tokyo and then start exploring the snow. Can anyone assist with recommendations for where to snowboard given the following: Male 29 - experienced snowboarder. Female 27 - first timer snowboarder. I am happy to spend most of the time with her on beginner slopes so off-piste/challenging terrain/ large variety is not a huge requirement. It would be a bonus if the hill had a terrain park or something playful next to a beginner run so I could stretch my legs on some laps. Would like cheap accommodation to be available (pension style) - targeting between AU$100-150 for a twin private. Bonus would be the ability to walk to lifts (or at least the accomodation does drop offs). Don't need large nightlife, though options for restaurants/drinks would be appreciated but not in expense of enjoyable snowboarding conditions (crowds etc). Preferably have soft snow more importantly than large dumps (to help the beginner). Would be a bonus if the area is quite scenic, and maybe some other attractions around for us to explore. We have quite a bit of time available so we could move between locations. Obviously we have left it pretty late for accomodation, please help! Looking for possibly that honshu ski resort which is upcoming or more orientated for beginners such that it isn't so busy... Appreciate your ideas. Cheers!
