– If you choose to ski, make sure you bring carving skis with plenty of width in the tips and tails to keep you floating above the snow!
– If you are snowboarding, bring a board longer than your usual length. You will need it as the snow will be deeper than anything you will have experienced
– Bring heaps of yen cash (more than A$60 a day). Most shops and restaurants don’t take credit cards.
– Japanese airline staff are very strict with baggage weights, so be careful!
