We've seen a little bit of snow up on Mt. Myoko, but today was the first day for snow around the center! Just a day after we got the kayaks into storage (but I'm keeping the canoe out, just in case I can get in one more paddle!). Getting pretty excited about the comping season! Lots of tours already lined up, but plenty of space for you to come join us! Snowshoeing, light ski hiking, snow safety training...lots of options even for non-skiers! Let us know if there's something you'd like to do; keep up with the latest developments at our Facebook page
BOA repairs at Dancing Snow
See us if you need a new wire!
The BOA closure system found on snowboard boots, our Tubbs snowshoes, boots, golf shoes, running shoes and a whole lot more is a tough, clever way to get tightly into your footwear.
The wires can break (apparently the twist unit can get bashed to death by some of you mad tree bouncers)—although it doesn't happen that often. If it does, just come by Dancing Snow. We've been trained, we have the parts (which are free), and we can get you back in pristine form and ready to head back out on the hill. The labor will be affordable, too—just buy a beer and relax while we rethread the wires! (or a coffee, or a new BCA avalanche transceiver. We aren't fussy). Let us know if we can help!
New for season 2017-2018
Get your new skis!
Ready for some new skis just right for the Myoko snows?
You can get those shiny new boards
right here at Dancing Snow!
We can get you set up with all the skis from K2 and Line, put on the bindings of your choice, get them waxed and ready and hold them here for you until you come to visit! We can also ship around Japan as well.
And, if you like, we can also store your skis right here in Myoko for you over the summer. We’ll put on a thick summer wax to protect the edges and bases, store them, then have them ready for the coming season. Just contact us at email@example.com
if you'd like more information, or want to place an order.
We also carry the full line of BCA snow safety equipment, K2 and BCA poles, helmets, skins, Tubbs snowshoes, and some fun Myoko-original clothing and goods in our center.
Dancing Snow is a BCA Snow Safety Center
Dancing Snow provides sales and rental of beacons, airbags and air cylinders from BCA, the premier manufacturer of snow safety goods.
The air cylinders for Japan are different from those for Europe and North America, meaning they can't be filled in the country—so just rent a cylinder, or a complete Float airbag system, for your stay in Myoko. Let us know well ahead on the airbags, though, so we can be sure and have one ready for you.
Stay tuned for that first snowfall of the 2018-2019 season! You can also look a the archive of our previous reports. →
