Join us in January 2024 and experience a snowboarding trip of a lifetime. We have partnered with Akakura Wakui Hotel  in Akakura Onsen to create the ultimate powder camp. These 6 days riding will be some of the most memorable turns and slashes you’ve ever made on your board. It will be bed and breakfast style accommodation with evenings out eating in some of the local restaurants in Myoko. 

Myoko in the Nagano region of Japan receives annual snowfall of around 14 metres. Weather systems traveling from Siberia load up over the South China sea and dump their goods all over the mountains of Japan. Inhabitants require diggers rather than shovels to enable them to go about their daily life. The huge volumes of snow mixed with some of most rider friendly mountains in the world have made this our number one choice to hold our Japanese Powder Camp.

Our Vivid Snowboarding coaches will be guiding and coaching you throughout your 6 days in Myoko. Rob one of the coaching team spent 10 weeks in Myoko in 2010 so knows the mountain and its secret spots ! 

The Myoko Kogen Mountain range is made up of 5 main ski resorts:

  • Akakura Onsen
  • Akakura Kanko
  • Ikenotaira Onsen
  • Myoko Suginohara
  • Seki Onsen 

The areas are interlinked via a bus network and all offer a slightly different riding experience. From Snowboarding through perfectly spaced out trees to night riding and making powder turns under floodlights. Not only is Myoko famed for its powder riding but it also has some of the best snowparks in Japan. Ikenotaira is awesome and the local park shapers take huge amounts of pride in creating features for all levels of rider. These parks are progressive and offer something for everyone.
