Fresh powder, hot springs and stunning scenery – Japan truly seems to have it all! Let Student Horizons organise your next overseas ski tour to one of the best ski resorts in Japan – Nozawa Onsen. A magical little ski village, tucked away in the mountains of the Nagano prefecture – a true paradise for all snow lovers!
Ski Resort Nozawa Onsen
There are few tourism destinations in New Zealand that can boast the reputation that Queenstown has built for itself. People both in NZ and around the globe know of the town and its many exciting adventure activities.
One word sums up this mountainscape above all others (even if it’s a little obvious) – remarkable. Like something straight out of Lord Of The Rings, this range stands proudly above the international airport, with jagged peaks that look as sharp as a knife. However, the mountainside that faces away from the town is far gentler, with a six-person chairlift and three quads.
This mountain is a little gentler than its neighbour, with far more intermediate (blue square) slopes – ideal for anyone looking to up their skills without stressing out too much.
One of the major drawcards of Coronet Peak is its night skiing. Every Friday and Saturday you can enjoy the park evening in the dark, as hundreds of lights keep things sparkling from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m.
Overall our experience using Student Horizons was fantastic. They are extremely thorough in all that they do. From the student/parent information session to the first aid course, everything was covered. The Tour Manuals and phone were very beneficial whilst on tour. Suzanne was easy to work with and was happy to make adjustments to suit our needs. Our students particularly got along with her and were sad to see her leave at the end of the tour. Thank you to everybody at Student Horizons who was involved in organising a very successful Ski Trip.
