cheapskiInawashiro Cheap Ski and Snowboard Day!

What: A cheap day of boarding and skiing with your friends! (Costumes optional!)
When: March 8 (Saturday)
Where: Inawashiro Ski Field (猪苗代スキー場)
How much: ONLY 2,500 yen!
How to sign up: From NOW until FEBRUARY 19 sign-ups are open. You need to email us at <fujetcouncil@gmail.com> for your place by FEBRUARY 19!
How to pay: Once we confirm your spot, you will need to furikomi 2,500 yen to the FuJET account. Simple!
Every year, FuJET hosts a cheap ski day at Inawashiro Ski field (http://goinawashiro.com/) with discounted lift tickets at 2,500 yen each! The tickets let you ski from 10AM to 4:30PM for only 2,500 yen!

It has become a bit of a tradition for all of us to rock up wearing costumes (see the photos in the event page for an idea), and we really would like to see everyone dress up again! We will definitely be in costumes, and hope to see many of you dressed up too!
We’ll be having prizes and awards for the people in the best costumes, so why wouldn’t you?!

Did we mention that people dressing up also helps our fundraising drive that we do every year? Three years ago, we raised about 40,000 yen for the Christchurch Quake relief efforts, and last year we raised about 25,000 yen for the Japan Cat Network. This year we will be raising money for the Philippines Disaster, so we really hope you will help us support this cause!

IT GETS BETTER! At around 1:30PM, we’ll be having out annual BOXER RUN! Boxer run…what on earth do you mean? Well, every year we strip down to our underwear, head up the mountain….and then head down the mountain! Why?! Why not!

Don’t board or ski? Worry not! Everyone is constantly popping in and out of the dining area, and there will always be someone around! You are more than welcome to come along, watch and relax.

Don’t know how board or ski? Fear not! There are no shortage of people willing to give you tips and advice – no is as good of a time as any to learn!

WHERE ON EARTH DO I SIGN UP FOR THIS AMAZING EVENT?!

You MUST email <fujetcouncil@gmail.com> to reserve your spot. You have from RIGHT NOW until FEBRUARY 19 to get your email in. Places are UNLIMITED, so feel free to invite anyone you like! Once you get a confirmation email from us, we’ll ask that you pay the 2,500 yen no later than FEBRUARY 21.
