The Bohemians' Shelter is located in Hakuba Valley, the best Freeride/Backcountry area in Japan. Its 10 different ski resorts which are all a short driving distance from the house, offer crazy tree runs, as well as fun slopes for any level.
Our warm and cozy shelter makes you feel like you are at home. We are nestled in a quiet forest full of snow monkeys and kamoshikas. It is perfect to relax and regain energy for the next powder days. Hot springs, also called Onsen are walking distance from our lodge. The Bohemians' Shelter offers different services to make your life easier : Japanese dinners, free ski shuttles, beer from the tap, ... It is the perfect place to discover Hakuba, its mountains and its bottomless powder !!!
The Bohemians' Shelter is located in the heart of the Japanese Alps, Hakuba, well known to receive around 12 meters of fresh snow per season.
Through the 10 ski-resorts of the valley, you will find some slopes to accommodate beginners and experts, as well as endless tree runs accessible with the ski lifts.
If you want to earn your turns, we are proud to say that the back country terrain in Hakuba is likely the best in the world: dense & deep snow, lots of summits, steep runs,... Just madness !
Snowboarding every day , was THE main reason that gave us the desire to quit everything to open The Bohemians' Shelter.
We chose Hakuba because we truly believe that it's hell of a good spot to express our self in the mountain. Our goal is to create a warm place where any rider can come and feel at home.
The mountain is done to be shared and we will be happy to share our humble knowledge about Hakuba terrain.
Amazing is the first adjective coming to our minds when we try to describe Japan and its people, but you have to come and see by yourself to understand.
Here, everything is so different than anywhere else in the world: the people, the language, the culture & THE FOOD !
Coming to Hakuba is not only about riding, but it is also a life experience. This place will surprise you everyday and make your life just better, trust us !
