Info For You

What time and where do we meet for our Snow Bike session?

All snow bike sessions meet 5 minutes before the published start time by the blue flag at the on-snow meeting area at the base of the Champion #1 chairlift in Akakura Resort.

What will the session include?

If it is your first time: 
– Your snow bike instructor will firstly go through a safety briefing with you including how to ride the chairlift and how to slow down and stop.
– You will then go up the Champion #1 chairlift. At the top you will start sliding down the run and get a feel for the balance, slowing and stopping.
– There are a couple of different turning techniques. Your instructor will show you how to do both. It usually takes a couple of runs to get the hang of turning.
– Over the session you can expect to do a few laps of the Champion #1 chair. If you are confident and progressing quickly your instructor may take you on a trail through the trees and show you how to do some tricks.
If you have done Snow Bikes before:
– Pleas ensure you have a combined Akakura Kanko/Onsen lift ticket.
– Your snow bike instructor will guide you around more trails throughout the combined resort areas.
– They will coach you to develop more advanced turning skills, control at speed, and tricks.

Do I need a lift ticket and is one included in the cost of the session?

A valid Akakura Kanko lift pass is required for all participants. Lift tickets are not automatically included in the session cost, but are available for discounted purchase from Myoko Snowsports as an add-on to your session.

Do I need a helmet?

Yes helmets are required for all participants. You are welcome to use your own ski/snowboard helmet. If you don’t have your own please let us know at the time of making your reservation and we will provide them complimentary.

What is the minimum age to participate in Snow Bikes?

The minimum age is generally 12 years old. All participants must be able to lift their snow bike on/off the chairlift.

How many people can we have in a snow bike session?

There is a minimum of 2, and a maximum of 4 participants per snow bike session.

Do your instructors speak English?
