Ski and Snowboard Rentals

There are many ski and snowboard hire shops around Hakuba so you don’t need to worry about renting before you come. You may however want to compare the prices in Hakuba compared to your home country before you leave.

Central Snowsports Hakuba

We recommend Central Snowsports as they offer good quality gear, prices are very competitive and offer a pick up  and drop off service  from Panketo Lodge. You can either start your day from the Gondola close to their shop or Central will drop you back and you can start from the Sakka lifts opposite Panketo Lodge.

Up to date prices are available on their website :


Spicy Rentals

Spicy’s Wadano store is located about 300 meters down the road from Panketo Lodge, we are happy to drop you at the store and you can walk through to the lift via a trail behind Spicy to the Sakka lifts.
