Ready to Join?

Dear Snow & Wine lovers,

This is a stay-overnight event combining snow & wine.
We will go to Okushiga-kogen Ski area and stay in a cozy pension, located next to ski slope.
We ski or snowboard during the day and enjoy wine at night, without being bothered by the time of last train.

Shiga-Kogen is one of the biggest ski areas in Japan and situated in the midst of the National Park, where advertising signboards, loudspeakers, or convenience stores are forbidden, which means you can enjoy its genuine nature utmost.
Besides, as its name shows, Okushiga-Kogen is placed at the deepest back side in the large Shiga-Kogen, and thus is famous for its quality of snow said to be as good as that of Hokkaido.

As for wine, I invite everyone to bring one bottle of one’s favorite.
If you think 6 bottles for 6 people for 2 nights are not enough, we can order more bottles at the pension.

The indicative schedule (subject to be changed) is as the following roughly.

* You can join the event from “Meet” ( Protected content ) or Protected content leave at “Departure” Protected content (2) as you like.
* I won’t take care of the train ticket. Please prepare the train tickets by yourself. If you don’t know how, I will help you.
* In case you come by car, I will send you the itinerary. We can meet at the pension. (“Meet” Protected content

By the reason of the room assignment, I divided this event announcement into two, [group L] for ladies [group M] for men, so please be careful not to sign up to the other.
(My name appears as attendee in the both groups because of the system, but the total number of the attendees of this event is 6 (=3 ladies and 3 men). I have reserved 2 rooms for 3 persons.)

Once you are registered as “attendee”, I will send you the detail.
Then, please send the staying fee to the pension.
When you have transferred the payment to the pension, I consider the registration is completed.

I have to admit the total cost will be rather high.
(Around 50,000 yen for 2 nights of stay at the pension, breakfast & dinner included, round trip by shinkansen and express bus, and 2 days lift ticket. )
So think over before you click, taking that into consideration.
But if you are a snow passionate, you won’t regret it.
I’ve been there to ski more than 30 times.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message.
