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

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.

The Peaks

Maeyama (1932m)
Our home course, accessed from the top of the Akakura Kanko Ski Area. A 400-meter hike up (and it's pretty steep on the main slope!), lunch at the top, then more than 1,000 meters down through spectacular beech forest.
Mt. Mitahara (2300m)
The longest course in the area; a descent of more than 10km, through fantastically varied terrain including open slopes, beech, birch and pine forests, and a winding mountain road.

Akakura-yama (2141m)
A great tree run, above Ikenotaira Ski Area. We usually approach from the Suginohara Ski Area on a beautiful hike through the woods, or from Ikenotaira for newer climbers. This is also a safe alternative when snow conditions elsewhere are questionable. Depending on the snow, we may ski all the way back to Dancing Snow.

Kanna-san (1909m)
A totally natural tour—no lifts and no crowds. Challenging for the approach, the hard work is rewarded by a big view, open slopes at the top and great tree runs all the way down.
Kurohime-yama (2053m)
Another solid climb on this course; 900 meters from the top of Kurohime Ski Area. The slopes can be moderately steep, but often with some of the finest powder that falls in the area. Tours to Sadoyama continue to the secondary peak within Kurohime.
  Other destinations:
For complete beginners—even those with no ski experience—we use light telemark gear and head off into the woods nearby for snow hiking. Other courses include Sasagamine, a vast, open area behind Myoko-san surrounded by mountains; the famous shrine and spectacular peaks of Togakushi (see more on the hiking page)
Spring and Fall multi-day tours

Mt. Hiuchi (2462m)
The highest peak within Niigata Prefecture, located just to the north of Mt Myoko. We tour up to the hut at the base several times in the spring. Skiing is from the peak back down to the southwest, or to the north all the way to Sasakura Onsen.
Tateyama (2300m and up)
This huge Alpine area is a playground for hundreds of people in late November, and through the spring. A little hike, though, and suddenly it feels like the mountains are all yours. Plus a real onsen mountain lodge experience at the end of the day, and always a party around the fireplace. A favorite of the whole Dancing Snow team!

About backcountry activities
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.

4. If you do have a chronic health condition, we appreciate your letting us know. We know that many people can take part in outdoor activities despite some conditions, and we respect your ability to judge if a tour will be within your abilities. Your information will be kept strictly secret, but will be very useful in helping us respond should anything happen during the day.

Note on personal information
To ensure the safety 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.
