This 2-day ski touring trip in Renge-Onsen, Nagano, is a great way to enjoy great powder and relax in a fantastic natural hot spring!
Renge-Onsen is a great treasure in the Nagano area. It’s hidden in the deep mountain to the north of Hakuba, inside the Chubu-Sangaku National Park. In winter it gets covered by the famous Japanese dry powder, which makes it an incredible place for backcountry skiing.
This program will start in the Tsugaike Kogen ski resort, a popular winter holidays destination surrounded by amazing mountains and comfortable hotels. From here we’ll ski to Renge-Onsen, where you’ll be able to relax in the sacred hot spring.
One of the best features of this program is that this hot springs are crowded during summer, because they can be reached by car. But in winter roads are closed and only skiers can get there!
Another great highlight is that you’ll taste some delicious local cuisine and feel the cozy mountain hut atmosphere.
On the second day we’ll go to Tsugaike or Hakuba to enjoy some more backcountry skiing terrain.

I am an IFMGA mountain guide, also certified by the JMGA, born in Slovenia. Slovenia is known as one of the major sporting countries in the world - I used to compete at the Olympics representing Slovenia in Cross-country Skiing. After I left Slovenia, I travelled all over the world and ended up in Japan, where I have now lived for more than 20 years, mainly because I love the beautiful Japanese mountains too much, and I feel privileged to be able to enjoy these mountains through the entire four seasons.
I am based at the foot of the Japan Alps, in Nagano Prefecture. In the winter, we go climbing or skiing around Mt. Fuji or Yatsugatake and in the summer, we can enjoy shower-climbing or canoeing. It is my absolute pleasure to also take you and guide you in my home country in Slovenia.
In addition to guiding the mountains, I also enjoy having the opportunity to teach mountain climbing skills to every level of climbers. This is because I want everyone to enjoy Japanese mountains safely.
I am the first non-Japanese mountain guide registered with the Japan Mountain Guide Association. Please contact me if you would love to have great experiences in the mountains in all seasons with me!
