Skiing and snowboarding aren't the only ways to slide down the slopes. Snow scooting is an exciting activity that's been gaining popularity among snow sports enthusiasts. Snow scoots and snow motos are the equipment of choice. These snowboard-skateboard hybrids might look similar, but there is a small difference — the snow moto has a seat attached. Whichever you choose, they are a fun and exhilarating way to have fun on the snowy slopes. Even if you are new to snow activities, you can try out this modern sport on the beginner’s course. Some resorts even offer guided snow scoot tours.
If cycling is more appealing, consider renting a fat bike. This is a versatile off-road bicycle with extra-wide tires ideal for riding smoothly through snowy terrains. Take it for some exhilarating downhill snow biking or a leisurely ride around Japan’s wintry countryside. Children can also join in the fun. At some resorts, you can rent strider bikes fitted with special attachments that allow kids to make their way around the winter slopes. You can find these and other equipment for snow activities in spots like Tsugaike Kogen in Nagano Prefecture or Appi Kogen in Iwate Prefecture.
