Karuizawa Basecamp Passport

If you’re interested in skiing or snowboarding in Japan this season, Karuizawa Basecamp Passport is a super deal.

Five one day lift ticket coupons and a local discount ID card are included for JPY21,000 in the package.

The lift ticket coupons are valid at seventeen different ski resorts nearby Karuizawa. The resorts span Nagano and Gunma.

Each resort has a different special – for example, some offer free lunch tickets with the lift ticket, others offer free onsen hot springs tickets. One resort even lets two people ski for a single coupon.

Karuizawa, Japan’s premier four season mountain resort, is just an hour from Tokyo by bullet train. Premium accommodations and fantastic dining are available. There are over five hundred restaurants, cafes, and bars in town.

The “Passport ID” included is valid for local discounts at several dozen restaurants and shops in town.

By the way, the entire project is non-profit and was created by my friends and I here in Karuizawa.
