I have never had a better guide, ever! From the moment our guide Tak picked us up, we were in the best hands. Each morning he studied the weather carefully so he could choose the best ski resort every day. He'd run in and get our tickets and then we'd follow him to his secret stashes all day for unlimited powder! He was kind, snow-smart, patient with my boot issues, and super fun to hang out with. He was also super cool to hang out with after skiing, from ramen bowls to onsens to beers. Really, if it weren't for our guide, we would not have had such an amazing five days of powder, and we certainly wouldn't have found all those stashes! And having a Japanese speaking guide was key to navigate everything in Japan, from convenience stores to menus to buying ibuprofen! He taught us so much! The whole operation at Rising Sun was great--they received my skis via UPS and had them delivered to my hotel, and also were really fast to communicate by email. Best guiding experience ever! Worth every penny!
