2018-19 is here!
Through an unusual series of events I find myself in one of the best ski resorts in the world, a complete beginner, working the season at Owashi lodge’s Kanpai Bar. I had no plans to end up here but damn was it a nice surprise to find a job slinging beers and cocktails in the chillest bar up the hill just 5 minutes walk from Hirafu Base.
The Season has only just begun and Christmas is just around the corner, still every day a new restaurant or bar opens its doors for the season and there are events on nightly. With so much to see and do in town it seems unlikely that even in the four months most seasonal staff work here they’ll see even half of it amongst all the powder chasing.
So to all holidaymakers staying at Owashi or otherwise, and all the lucky guys ‘n gals who found work here this season, I’ll raise you a glass and see you on the slopes.
And to anyone reading this wondering if you should do it next year, 100% you should be here already!
