Ski and Snowboard Rentals


There are many ski and snowboard hire shops around Hakuba so you don’t need to worry about renting before you come.

You may however want to compare the prices in Hakuba compared to your home country before you leave.

Our sister lodge, Penke Panke, has a limited number of premium skis and snowboards available (pictured above) for rental.
