Title: New Myoko Ski Lift Pass
Post by: myokoguy on October 16, 2011, 09:57:25 PM
For those heading to Myoko this season there is a new pass - the Myoko Super Big-4 Lift Pass (http://myokokogen.net/ski-lift-passes-discount-coupon.htm#myoko_joint_ski_pass). This is a special ski lift ticket price for long-stay guests. Good for all four Myoko-area ski resorts (exc. Seki) and ideal for frequent skiers or those staying from 8 to 21 days in Myoko. The available period begins from the first day of use in Myoko. The pass costs a flat ¥35,000 so once you stay more than about 10 days the value really kicks in.

Am I understanding this correctly - the pass gives you up to 21 days skiing at any of the 4 main Myoko resorts?
What happens if you ski 2 resorts in the one day? Does this count as 2 days?

Seeing it covers the three resorts I'm fairly sure you could do more than one resort in a day skichanger. However you waste at least an hour changing resorts so I'd recommend staying in one place for the day unless there's a very good reason to do otherwise.

Here's the form for it: http://myokokogen.net/Mt_Myoko_Super_Pass.pdf (http://myokokogen.net/Mt_Myoko_Super_Pass.pdf)

This is really good value for those staying an extended period I think.  ;D ;D

Are these 2 different passes?
35k yen for the 4 resort 21 day pass.
50k yen for the 3 resort season pass.
We are planning on having a long stay so it will be difficult to work out which is best. :-\
Spending an hour changing resorts may be much needed recovery time  ;D I have teenage boys and I am worn out after about 2 hourrs skiing with them.

Yes. One is only for 3 weeks and the other is for a season. I'd go for the season pass if staying past 3 weeks as 15,000 is only the equivalent of 4 day passes. So you only need to ski 3 weeks and 4 days to make it worthwhile.
