We are a family of 5 (3 kids aged 5, 4 and 9) looking to do a ski trip in Japan in February 2011. Suggestions for suitable ski fields and accommodation are needed! Kids have never skied before and therefore we would like to have other touristy options if they aren't into it. Reply to this

Hokkaido, Hokkaido, Hokkaido 😊

The big plus there is the Sapporo Snow Festival which is usually in the first week of February.
It's held at three different venues; the main street with the huge snow sculptures, a street off the main road which has ice sculptures, and the third venue requires a bus ride - but has lots of fun rides/activities the kids will love.

Maruyama Zoo is free for kids.

I really enjoyed the Hokkaido Historical Village too;

I am definitely not a big fan of Club Meds,but for family ski holidays in Japan, do try Club Med Sahoro (not Sapporo). Excellent location with ski lifts right at the entrance of the hotel. Good instructors and equipment rental. Nice outdoor hot tub. Forget the cheesy resort, but if your intention is to ski as much as possible, this place is great. Reply to this
