Tokyo, JAPAN—December 27, 2022—/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/

  • Earth Hopper has launched its English platform with a four-day, multi-mountain ski pass that unlocks over 18 destinations.
  • The pass is only¥20,000 (approximately $149 USD) which works out to only $37.25 a day.
  • The pass has no blackout dates and pass holders can ride three days maximum at each resort.
  • Japan eased border control measures in October 2022 and is now welcoming international tourists.

Pionnerwork Inc, unveiled its latest Earth Hopper Japanese ski pass evolution with the highly anticipated launch of a four-day, multi-resort pass on a new English platform.

The four-day Earth Hopper pass has no blackout dates and gives international visitors access to four days of riding (and up to three days at each) at their choice of over 18 resorts across Japan for only ¥20,000 or approximately $149 USD. That works out to only $37.25 a day.

While other multi-resort passes exist around the world, Earth Hopper is the first pass to extensively cover resorts across Japan.

“During the past two years when no international skiers and snowboarders were able to visit, Japan had very good snowfall. We decided to market Earth Hopper to English-speaking countries in the hope that many international skiers and snowboarders would enjoy the snow in Japan this year,” said Yoichi Goto, founder of Earth Hopper and Pioneerwork.

Launched in 2021 during the Pandemic, Earth Hopper passes were available exclusively to Japanese residents. Now, due to popular demand they are available in English so international visitors can take advantage with restrictions lifted and visa-free travel available.

The four-day pass is now available and additional pass levels are in development.
