Valuable information and highly recommended reading.
The following information should help you get a much better feeling of skiing/riding in
particularly if you are planning your first trip.
Q. Do I need to be an expert skier/rider to ski in North America or Japan?
A. You certainly do not need to be an expert to get the most enjoyment out of a North American or Japanese snow holiday. The resorts are great places to learn to ski or board, and there are plenty of wide open groomed green and blue runs for novices and intermediates. No matter what your age or level of experience, you can all have loads of fun every day in Japan and North America.
Q. What are the weather and snow conditions like ? Is there ice ?
A. Weather conditions and snow conditions in North America are fantastic. There is no ice and the snow is light and fluffy with great groomed runs.
Q. What happens if the mountains are closed ?
A. Guaranteed ski days or your money back. Skiing in North America is much more reliable
than in NZ or Australia. There is seldom any ice, and mountain closures due
to poor weather are almost unheard of. In all our years of selling
snow holidays to Canada and USA, none of our clients have ever
lost a day of skiing due to bad weather.
Q. I don't have a ski buddy. Should I travel alone?
A. Single travellers can have great fun joining our Escorted Ski Tours. It is a great way to meet new like minded people and make new skiing friends.
Q. What is Ski in Ski Out accommodation?
A. Ski in Ski Out accommodation is situated right on the skifields, steps away from lifts and ski runs. Just put on your skis outside your door and start skiing! No need to transfer up and down mountains, no need to park your car and carry your gear to the lifts. It is so easy and hassle free.
