The Boarding Co, Hakuba

A Japanese level of service with a western insight.

The products we stock represent the cutting edge and powder specialist riding equipment. From kids to veterans you will appreciate the depth of knowledge that comes over the counters from our store. Everything you'll need to take your skills to the next level. Our inventory is a selection of what we think is appropriate for Hakuba to ultimately ride pow, but also pow boards that give you spring out of your turns on the groomers and most importantly will hold an edge on ice to be able to traverse to that powder stash.

We offer rental services focusing on making your trip easier at all levels, including children, families, and tour guides.

Book online and enjoy our complimentary chalet service , a professional will arrange your gear and take you to the slopes in time for your lessons.


Upon finishing with our gear ,we come and collect it, you`re on your way.

Where you are is what matters to us - we just make it easy.
