Great week with jerry, showed us some fantastic local fields covered in plenty of pow, we felt safe as jerry knows his stuff and is very aware of making sure clients get good and safe skiing. His local knowledge of the area meant a good time on and off the fields.

We used Jerry and Tubs at Good Guides for a days tree skiing in Tsugaike Kogen and had an absolutely awesome day! Perfect conditions and powder galore. My 3 daughters loved it and Michelle voted it the "best day of her life".

We came across Good Guides through a recommendation from another company that was fully booked, and I'm so glad they were!

The first time we went out with Jerry he took us around Hakuba avoiding the other skiers, pushing us all day to try new things and educating on the mountain. It was an awesome introduction to touring around the area, so awesome that we came back the next weekend for more guiding!

We also spent another weekend up in a Tateyama, it was a handpicked trip based on the forecast and snow, again with both being perfect.

The only down side is that we found Jerry at the back end of the season, but its more encouragement to head back up to the mountains next winter and get to explore more of the region. Going out with Good Guides can only be summed up as stress free skiing (if you ignore some of the slopes they encourage you to get up and down!)

Excellent Hakuba guide

Skied with Jerry from Good Guides in Hakuba Cortina and Tsugaike Kogen last winter. Had an awesome day with deep fresh snow in Tsugaike Kogen. Jerry showed us fresh tracks all day until we were completely done for. Very good knowledge on the Hakuba area, speaks fluent Japanese which is a plus for encounters with the ski patrol and is overall a very nice guy. We went to a few really good local onsen's as well. If you go to Hakuba area, I think Good Guides is an excellent choice. We only did the private guiding so I can't speak for the lodgings or equipment.

Great time at Hakuba

I went skiing in Hakuba in February with 5 friends and Jerry as our guide. One of the best skiing experiences I've ever had. The mountain and package was excellent, and Jerry went out of his way to make it a memorable experience. Would highly recommend it to anyone else going that way and make sure you get Jerry as your guide!
