To Ski Japan Or To Stay At Home?

With Coronavirus in the forefront of everybody’s mind, these are unpredictable times, and we at the SkiJapan family have been thinking about the three common bonds we share with our customers: we all love Japan, we all love snow, and we’re all feeling particularly cautious right now.

In light of the recent events which have affected the whole world, there has been a significant impact; on our sense of security, our well-being, our families, and our way of life. Businesses both large and small are struggling, with very few industries left untouched by this pandemic.

As such, we at SkiJapan are keenly aware that travel might not be the first thing on everybody’s mind right now, but the common interests we share for all things #Deep and #Japow-dery are still a wonderful escape for all of us, whether it be anticipating the upcoming season, or enjoying our shared passion vicariously online.


To help assist the escapism many of us are seeking right now – especially as more and more of you find yourselves at home for extended periods – we will be increasing our efforts to bring you all the best Japan winter photos, videos and articles through our social media platforms. Sit back, relax, and dream about those waist-deep turns next winter!

We understand that plans may change over the following months – whether they are related to budget, health, or travel limitations – and we are committed to ensuring that you can book with confidence when you choose SkiJapan, and leave any worrying to the more pressing issues.

We are taking three major steps to ensure that any keen adventurers wanting to secure their favourite location or make the most of early booking savings can rest assured of the best support and flexibility in the industry:

Advanced Purchase Rate

We strive to deliver on the best possible rates and value for our customers. For the 2020/21 season, not only have we turned back time with considerable reductions on rates across our properties, you can secure up to a further 30% OFF when you book by 30 October. Conditions apply.

Book Now Pay Later

We are taking away the big up-front fees with no deposit and no worries. Up until 30 October, it only takes ¥10,000 JPY ($100 AUD for Australia) to secure your favourite accommodation in your favourite resort at the best time of the season!

Our aim is to help keep your dream alive and give you the confidence to secure your dream snow holiday. Conditions apply.

Reschedule your Holiday

With our Reschedule with Ease policy, booking directly with SkiJapan means you are free to reschedule your trip for new dates during the 2020/21 season without incurring extra fees.

If your plans change entirely and you need to cancel your booking entirely we also provide that flexibility and peace of mind to do so. Conditions apply.


We recommend the following resources for updates on the status of travel to and throughout Japan, and encourage everyone to prioritize the health and safety of themselves, their families, and their communities first.
