Inter-Chamber Ski and Snowboard Networking Retreat

Winter is coming!
With snow falling and the first ski resorts opening these days, the joint Inter-Chamber Ski and Snowboard Networking retreat, Jan 25/26, is getting closer – ahead of winter/Christmas vacation is a great time to decide with your family, partners and/or friends to join this great event.

Nine chambers of commerce have joined forces to bring you the 2020 edition of this event, at a new venue but similar setup – fun and easy race in the morning and great event party in the evening.


Venue: the greatly modernized wintersport resort Ishiuchi-Maruyama, Niigata, conveniently located close to the Echigo-Yusawa shinkansen station. The race in the morning is a fun and easy giant slalom course, ready for children of any age, snow boarders and those who haven’t skied or snowboarded for quite some time.


Participants: usually some 50 to 60 people in the race and some 100 to 120 people at the evening award party. Half of the participants being Japanese, the other half foreigners with usually long residence histories in Japan make this a great networking and mingling experience.

Also, no worries if you, your partner, friends etc. are not so much into skiing or snow-boarding. The area boasts one of the most active onsen scenes around Niigata – there are even tours to experience e.g. five different onsen a day!


Accommodation can be arranged freely by participants themselves, fitting their needs as families, groups of friends or single participants.

Note: the evening networking party will take place in the New Ohtani NASPA. There will also be a morning and evening shuttle bus from the hotel to the ski area and back, respectively.

If you want to book into the NASPA, register quickly and inform the ABC, they still have a few rooms available.


If your company wants to become a sponsor of this event, or if you have any other questions, please also contact the ABC (Ms. Mami Iwasaki or Mr. Arnold Ackerer) at
