Day 1

Transfer to Myoko where your guide will be waiting to greet you. From there your guide will give you an introduction to the local area, make sure you have everything you need and deliver you to your hotel for some relaxation before your dream ski holiday begins!

Day 2 to 9

Our professional mountain guides will decide the best place to ski each day. Your first morning will start with an in depth avalanche safety briefing and training.
