I grew up on the South Island of New Zealand and learned to ski from a very young age, I got a job working for the ski resort where I learned to ski and became skilled in everything from running the lodge and bar to operating the lifts and later becoming a ski patroller.
In 2010 I was offered a job at a ski shop in Niseko, Japan. I immediately fell in love with the country and its culture, and of course the food and powder covered mountains. Although I enjoyed Niseko and made very good friends there something was missing. In 2013 I visited Hakuba, Japan. Upon arriving in Hakuba I felt this was the part of Japan I had been searching for, the enormous mountains, beautiful lakes, incredible forests and the amazing old Japanese architecture that collectively can't be found on Hokkaido. In November that year I moved to Hakuba and worked there for the winter months of the following two seasons.
My dream had always been to own and operate my own ski lodge and in 2015 I was able to buy this lodge with spectacular views over the valley located on a quiet sunny hillside a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of the Hakuba nightlife.
My lodge is my home, so I hope you'll feel right at home during your stay. I am stoked to be living here in Hakuba! Come and see why...
At Kamoshika Views I have a private shuttle to drop you off at the ski resort so you don't have to wait with numerous others waiting for the public shuttle buses. I also do daily supermarket and onsen trips and if you feel like dinning out at one of Hakuba's incredible restaurants I'll drop you off there too.
I welcome you to use the fully functioning commercial kitchen to make your own meals. If you feel like having a night in there's plenty of room to make dinner and hangout in the toasty lounge with comfortable couches. There's a big TV with stacks of movies or you can chill out with your favorite music.
You'll soon be dreaming of your next turns or laughing with new friends over a few beers available from the conveniently located beer vending machine.
So and I'll show you why I love it so much here.
