Joetsu Myoko Ski Rentals
Info about Myoko Ski Hire
There are various Joetsu Myoko ski hire shops located near the slopes, especially in Akakura and Ikenotaira, that can provide you with all your snow equipment rental requirements, including those all important fat skis and powder snowboards for the deep powder. The quality of the rental equipment is generally higher than many other Japanese ski resorts where you can often still find rear entry boots! Also with the Joetsu Myoko ski and snowboard shops, you don’t need to worry that they won’t have skis, clothing or boots for big westerners. Even Size 13’s are catered for!
Whilst there are a good number of ski rental shops in Myoko, it always pays to pre-book your rental equipment especially if you want performance gear. Many of the Joetsu Myoko ski rental shops will transport either you or your gear to and from your accommodation.
In Myoko Kogen there are a couple of Myoko ski rentals shops that are English speaking only, whilst most other have bilingual staff. Outside of Myoko Kogen (apart from Arai and Madarao Kogen) English speaking ski rentals are more difficult to find. So perhaps before locking in your accommodation it’s best to explore the links below and ensure you have access to the sort of ski rentals that you are seeking for your visit to the area.
Do you need a transfer to/from the Tokyo airports or one of the nearby resorts such as Hakuba or Nozawa Onsen? Then check out Nagano Snow Shuttle for a hassle free transfer. Fares start as low as 5,900 and can be booked and confirmed online.
