Jerry Williams provided an amazing tour for us. We saw and did things we could not have imagined. We visited 8 different ski fields in 8 days and Jerry adapted to the various levels in our group. He chased powder for the advanced skiers as well as providing opportunities for the less able in the group.
His ability to speak fluent Japanese meant we were totally stress-free in outfitting ourselves with gear, eating and ordering food in restaurants and buying ski passes etc.
Jerry took us on cultural tours and his personable attention to detail was outstanding. I would

A Great Ski Trip

Jerry ran a great trip and in addition was good company with a good sense of humour which he needed with our group. Accommodation was great, the skiing excellent including deep powder in trees, and lots of beautiful dry squeaky snow on a variety of terrain. We skied 7 days in a row until I demanded a day off and then skied again after that. Both Hakuba and Myoko have plenty of fields and good facilities. Hardly saw a queue and plenty of cafes. Not a Jimmy's pie in sight though.
Jerry also took us to some great local restaurants and on our day off to a boutique beer brewery, a sake distillery and a very good cake shop! And snow monkeys if you like that sort of thing. We'd definitely go back with Good Guides.

Good times with good guides!

Most of us are Tokyo based and we had ridden similar areas but wanted a proper guided experience to push ourselves outside of the normal routine. To put it simply, Riding was amazing! Almost everyday we rode lines that we thought were out of our reach but thanks to superior local knowledge combined with great experience and safety minded touring we always felt safe and comfortable being led down some of the most epic lines of our life! Off the mountain our guide was at home speaking Japanese which was a great surprise for our group and we had some great experiences going to onsens, shrines, snow monkeys and also having some well deserved beers and local dining. I would recommend this package to almost anyone as there is a great combination of the real japan mixed with the more adventurous and experience based exploring that comes with a smaller based operation.
