'Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.' Maya AngelouOur Itinerary
I absolutely loved the skiing. We had the best conditions and it was amazing. The food was as amazing as I had on my other Goddess Retreat in Bali, I loved that the staff was accommodating and that there were plenty of options. We also had and amazing group of women that made the trip very enjoyable.
"I loved skiing JAPOW (Japanese Powder)!!! Your organisation of the retreat was beyond anything I expected. Your service and help made it an absolutely memorable experience. As a first time skier and solo traveller - it was perfect. I can't thank you enough. (I loved the goddess cards on our beds each night too...very nice touch)"
"The Snow Goddess team is amazing and they work so hard to create a fantastic experience for each guest. I loved meeting the other ladies that enjoy the same activities as me and sharing the week with them. This was a great group of girls and we could not have asked for a better week. The ski instructors were awesome, the meals were fabulous or course and a great drink selection too! This was a fantastic winter vacation and I would have never traveled to Japan for a ski holiday without Snow Goddess."
"My highlights were the snow conditions and access to a variety of resorts was amazing. On my retreat there was a great group of professional, and interesting ladies from around the world and the retreat leader were relaxed and accommodating and spoilt me from start to finish. On Bliss day I loved the snow monkeys and the onsen visits, meals...well everything really!"
'I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up as I haven't taken a group trip before, but I really needed to get away and I didn't feel like traveling alone. Well I got so much more than I expected! The feeling that really stays with me is the sense of being among friends the whole week, even though I didn't know a soul.'
'There was something for everyone, and even though everyone was different we all were able to come together over the week and there was a wonderful supportive feeling between everybody, no matter what age or experience they were. I credit this to the warmth of the Goddess team who stressed again and again that the trip was all about being kind to yourself, even when you are pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.'
"I really enjoyed having great instructors everyday, so that i could enjoy all son conditions and make the most of my snow holiday. It seems as if every aspect of this holiday has been thoroughly considered and planned. We got the best of Hakuba...great food, skilled instructors careful selection of where to go and what to do. The retreat leaders were very accommodating and provided us with so much information and support if we were interested in doing anything in the area. They would research it and give us all the information to carry out our adventures that were not all ready planned into the very well considered schedule. I liked the balance between planned activities and the freedom to explore. The retreat was perfect!! Every woman should come to Snow Godddess ...we deserve to have anise holiday and get pampered."
"Absolutely loved it all! What an amazing group of girls. The ski instructors were all absolutely brilliant and good fun. Relaxing at the Onsen after a hard day's skiing was just perfect. Joyce's cooking was fantastic. We were beautifully looked after by all the leaders. Nothing was too much trouble from organising train tickets to booking restaurants on the night we wanted to ventured out on our own. Thank you for a wonderful week - I simply do not want to leave! See you next year!"
"I loved the whole thing! I was nervous about coming but it couldn't have turned out better. It was wonderful to have my own lovely room and be looked after so well. The people, the food and the service as fantastic. Ski instruction was excellent - it was so great to have a private lessons and the instructor Colin was great and very patient & encouraging. The snow conditions were fantastic, especially the day of the fresh powder - best snow i have ver skied in! the snow Monkey tour was also great and the guide was very entertaining! It was a great thing to do to break up the week. Just wish I was staying longer!!"
"The retreat highlights were the skiing!! Plus the yummy meals, onset visits, just hanging out in the lodge. All the retreat leads were super friendly, helpful and accommodating. I couldn't have hashed for a cooler group of women to lead a ski retreat!"
"This entire experience has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I enjoyed all aspects. The biggest highlight would either be the snowboarding lessons, the snow monkey excursion, the company of so many wonderful women or the delicious meals!"
