There’s plenty of places you can hit the slopes come Winter, but when it comes to exotic locations, Japan is hard to beat. And Spring is one of the greatest times to check it out and experience “blue-bird days” – a day filled with bright sunshine and blue skies right after mighty Mother Nature has dumped a fresh load of powder snow.

When it comes to getting all the in-the-know information, our friends at Liquid Snow Tours are the people to speak to. They’ve put together an awesome eBook that includes resort info on all the hot spots – Hakuba, Niseko, Furano, Nozawa Onsen, Myoko Kogen, Shiga Kogen, Appi Kogen and Madaro. Head on over to their website and download their eBook for the best local recommendations, trail maps and secret spots.
They assure us that while you’ll still benefit from wearing your super soft, warm and comfortable I/O Merino thermal Merino base layers, the weather is actually much milder in Spring too. Plus, there’s less crowds, no line-ups at the lifts and without the Winter blizzards, you can even see where you’re skiing! Which can certainly come in handy.
SKI & BOARD EASY.
They have a great range of tours to choose from, and if you’re the kind of person who likes a bit of adventure, but prefers the arrangements to be easy, they have some fantastic all inclusive options available so literally everything is taken care of for you. There’s no need to be overwhelmed by the choice of ski schools, what and where to hire, where to stay or eat, or how to get there. The only decision you’ll have to make is what colour I/O Merino base layers you want, and you’re ready to go.
