Rentals & Lessons

Ski/Snowboard equipment rentals

Once you arrive at the lodge we will help find the right equipment for you.

Rental stores cater for western sizes, however, if you have a very large foot size or special request we recommend booking your equipment online prior to arrival. Rental stores have English speaking staff and a great selection of equipment for all ski and snowboard levels. You should budget for approximately ¥4500 per day for a full set of ski/snowboard equipment not including clothing.

Central Snow Sports

All equipment can be pre-booked, and CentralSnowSports provide a valet service picking you up from Hakuba House. After fitting you out, they will drop you back at the lodge (or just your clothes and shoes if you head out straight from the shop). Located a short walk from the lodge, so changing gear is super easy.

Rhythm Snow Sports

With a great range of gear and a valet service, RhythmSnowSports also take pre-bookings online. Located further from the lodge but also have a great retail outlet.

Telemark/Touring Gear

Rapie is the place to go for specialised telemark and touring rentals.
