Sit-skiing in Japan - paraplegic skier Glen Rabie from Australia

"With the help of Ski Japan and their ski school / equipment shop Niseko Base Sports we managed to get a hire sit ski sent to Niseko. 72,000Yen including shipping for 5 days. The ski was not ideal as the bucket was a little small and the ski way too skinny for the conditions but I managed to ski bumps, steeps and off piste powder!

There are a lot of old chairs without bars at Niseko, however there are enough modern chairs across the main resort to enable us to ski most of the mountain. No discounts on lift tickets etc. but given my knowledge of Niseko we were able to ski without guides. Pretty damn cold but heaps of powder! Great ski school for the kids too and a great range of accommodation and dining options. The resort while very much changed retains its village feel and unique charm. We will be back - probably with our own sit ski."

Glen Rabie, 2012
