Snow is Here, Get Your Gear: Ski and Snowboard Shops in Nagoya

As an avid cyclist who rides daily for their commute, I tend to fear the winter months. Nothing does for the motivation like the icy wind biting at your fingers, nose, and toes. But there is one bright side because, as I ride deeper and deeper into Gifu each morning and the mountains rise ahead of me, their caps increasingly snow-smattered, I am heartened by the fact that the winter sports season is upon us.

And so, with our fingers crossed (the last couple of years haven’t been the best for snow), we head into winter, meaning that it’s time to start getting our kit together, sharpening skis and snowboards, and making sure that moths haven’t attacked our winter-wear.

But where’s the fun in that? Isn’t it better to get all new gear so you can look your best on the slopes? If you are that way inclined, why not check out some ski and snowboard shops in and around Nagoya.

Paddle Club

Paddle Club in Sakae is a ski specialist store. It caters to all sorts of skiing styles, including backcountry, powder, and racing. Open from 10:30 to 19:30 Monday to Saturday, and until 19:00 on Sundays and holidays. They also have a wide array of apparel, and internet shopping is also available.

On the fourth floor of the Parco department store’s South (南) Building, Sports Lab by Atmos has a load of snowboard gear and apparel ranging from those for beginners to top-of-the-range gear. Keep an eye out for discounted equipment from previous years.

Cool and edgy, Golgoda is an outdoor sports store in Moriyama specializing in surfing and hiking in the summer and snowboarding in winter. If you are looking for a real deal on counter-culture brands this season, this is it. Not a single Burton in sight!

Winter 501

If you already have a board or skis and need a tune-up, the guys at Winter 501 know what they are doing. Furthermore, if you have problems with your boots, they also have a specialized innersole fitting system that should go some way to curing those aches and pains.

Near Irinaka Station, Seed is another place to go for all of your snowboard and ski tune-up needs. Furthermore, as one of their staff is Paralympian Alpine skier Mitsufumi Yamamoto, they can advise on the places best equipped for skiing and snowboarding for people with disabilities.
