Our new home
Exterior Welcome to the new Dancing Snow World Headquarters!

We're very happy to have a new home to welcome our tour guests, and to provide more backcountry gear, rentals, and even sales of some great Myoko products! Dancing Snow is now located just below the Myoko Sky Cable at Akakan. We have:

show more/hide

• Tour and telemark ski, skins, snowshoe and pole rentals
• Avalanche gear rentals, including BCA transceivers, BCA airbags and cylinders for BCA airbags (don't bother bringing one from overseas!)
• BCA Beacon Park: practice using your avalanche gear in a realistic and fun way
• Sales of BCA and K2 equipment
• Sales of unique Myoko items
• And much more—come see us!


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.


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. One of the most enjoyable ways to access the pristine forest is on light telemark gear that lets you both climb up and have fun sliding down. Anyone can do it; there are runs through the woods that make it fun and safe for every guest. We also have some unique ski/snowshoe hybrids for those who don't feel confident about traveling on skis—and even snowshoes for those who just want to walk through the woods.

Partway through, we'll stop to make a snow table and enjoy a hot lunch—usually cheese fondue, but we can change the menu if needed (either way we'll have some wine for "cooking" as well). We'll then start skiing back through the woods, on a safe and fun course ideal for your abilities. 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. 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.

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.
