We’re going to JAPOW!! It’s one of Jenny’s favourite places to go snowboarding – when the snow falls (which it does a lot!) the powder is incredible and there is so much playful terrain to ride.
We will be based in Niseko staying at the awesome Skye Niseko Hotel which is right in the centre of the resort and has its own spa and Onsen (Japanese hot pool) We will ride all the local resorts, Hanazono Grand Hirafu, Annapuri and Niseko, choosing the best options depending on conditions each day. There will be guiding and coaching through the week from expert Neil McNair and we will be joined on two days by local Niseko guide and friend Owaine Bassett who has an extensive knowledge of the mountains and snowboarding in this area.
During the week we will also venture further afield hiking or snowshoeing into the backcountry for some fresh lines and adventure 🙂 Jenny will ride with the group throughout the week assisting with coaching tips and powder face shots 😉 Off snow we have the wonderful yoga coach Sian Leigh who will focus on challenging your ability by practicing yoga which is specific to snowboarding and addressing the need for balance and recovery after a hard day on the hill. Along with the riding and yoga we will be able to experience the unique Japanese culture – visiting natural hot springs – onsens, discover local customs, experience night riding, music, sake and more all of which will make this snowboarding workshop so special and full of epic memories.
