Networking at a mountain retreat while enjoying a good time with friends, family and business contacts is the promise of the Inter-Chamber Ski Race series. Open also to snowboarders and onsen lovers, it brings together members of foreign business chambers in Japan, members of the Japanese business community, contacts from Niigata and friends of Alpine winter sports.

Supporting chambers include the chambers from Austria, Belgium-Luxembourg, Denmark, Germany, Spain and Switzerland.

The event location is the refurbished Lotte Arai Resort in Myoko, Niigata, a popular destination in Japan with high snow security and a range of available facilities besides the mountain slopes.

The race in the morning of February 18 is a two-runs, painless giant slalom catering to all levels of skiers. We also have a snowboard race and welcome any snowboarders to participate!

As the race finishes in the morning, the afternoon is at everyone’s disposal to do skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing or enjoying one of the many local hot spas (onsen). The evening award and networking party brings together some 100 people including race participants, their families and friends and business contacts.

Attending the race or the evening party are NOT mandatory, you are welcome to just attend the race or just the evening party.
