2019 World Tour: Paddling Film Festival
June 2, 2019, 1pm, Myokokogen Messe
Spring is here, and the days of getting out on the water are just around the corner! Dancing Snow is pleased to present—for the first time in Japan—the Paddling Film Festival. Organized by Ontario province, Canada, the Festival brings together films featuring canoeing, whitewater kayaking, sea kayaking, stand-up-paddling, kayak fishing, but also nature, ecology, kids and more! A great chance to get ready for summer! Tickets are only ¥1,000 for adults, ¥500 for children, with reservations available right here!

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. Boa

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!

Lots of fun stuff for the snow
Dancing Snow is here to guide you up into the mountains, but we're also ready with a variety fo things you'll need to be safe and have fun when you're traveling in the hills:
  • Topographic maps of the area, with English key (above; so you know which hill is which!)
  • BCA snow safety gear: beacons, shovels, probes, airbags
  • K2 skis, poles, boots
  • K2 goggles—now 30% off!
  • Tubbs snowshoes
  • Fits ski and hiking socks
  • Ultra-light Blue Ice ski-use harnesses
  • Myoko-original items from Maruni Jeans

  • Dancing Snow is a BCA Snow Safety Center
      BCA logo Dancing Snow provides sales and rental of beacons, airbags and air cylinders from BCA, the premier manufacturer of snow safety goods. Float 32 airbag

    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.


    Snow Reports
    The latest from our snow study plot and findings on the hill. Things were getting long here, so find reports both new and old on our Facebook page. We're always looking to hear from you about what you find out on the hill! The more information we have and can share here, the better, more accurate and more informative it will be!
    Enjoy a day out in Myoko's beautiful backcountry
    (no experience needed!)
    Just a short walk away from the Dancing Snow center is a remarkable, natural world. We'll get you out there, on snowshoes or light telemark skis—both OK even for people enjoying their first on-snow experience. On a full-day hike, we'll stop to make a snow table, then prepare a hot lunch. We'll then ski or snowshoe back through the woods, on a safe and fun course ideal for your abilities. On skis, and if you have ski experience, we may find some interesting slopes to ski down; if you're a beginner, we'll find some easy, gentle slopes. Snowshoes are a lot of fun coming down deep powder slopes, too, so if you want to try, we know some good descents. And everyone will see countless animal tracks—sometimes the animals themselves—and birds, and get a taste of backcountry ski touring.

    Great for groups and families, and for anyone who wants to get away from the sounds and people of the slopes. To arrange for a snow hiking session, please contact us at least two days in advance so we can prepare the materials needed.
    Snow hiking is available throughout the season.
    We can often hike even when there isn't enough snow for peak tours—we know some good courses!

    Spring is also an excellent time to go snow hiking, even as late as early May.

    Just let us know in advance (preferably a week or so—but feel free to ask!) so that we can arrange for the guide and materials.
    ¥15,000 per person
    Includes everything you need, including gear, lunch, insurance, transportation, guide fee.
    Risks
    Please read and understand the following before taking part in a tour:
    1. Depending on weather and snow conditions, tour destinations may be changed, or the tour cancelled.
    2. Backcountry skiing and snowboarding involves the risk of injury or death. For that reason, we require all guests to sign a waiver before taking part in backcountry activities (a pdf version can be found here). At the same time, our guides have training in first aid, avalanche forecasting and rescue, and are dedicated to providing the most enjoyable, well-planned experience possible
    3. Every Dancing Snow client is automatically included in our group insurance policy at no additional charge (please contact us if you would like more details on coverage). We also strongly suggest that all those taking part in backcountry tours have their own active insurance policy which covers outdoor activities.

    Note on personal information
    To ensure the privacy of our guests, we do ask for personal information including telephone numbers, emergency contacts, etc., as part of registration for lessons and tours. We will not use this information for anything other than this purpose, nor will we release any personal information to any third parties.
