SNOW ACTIVITIES

The 2018-2019 winter season will begin on the 15th of December 2018.

SKIING & SNOWBOARDING

Skiing and snowboarding are the main activities which attract customers to Gala! The feeling of the wind blowing past your face or the feeling of powder below your feet is something that you’ll never be able to forget! If you want to take the chance, to dive feet first into a new experience, Gala is the chance of a lifetime!

To go skiing or snowboarding at Gala you will need a lift pass! The lift pass will let you take the gondola, so that you may reach our resort, and ride the chair lifts, so that you may ski/snowboard down.

One of the cheapest ways to come to Gala from Tokyo is using the JR Tokyo Wide Pass and this pass makes you eligible for a lift pass discount package!
