In Focus - Base Camp The Lodge, Myoko - Owner Interview

In Focus - Base Camp The Lodge, Myoko - Owner Interview

This month we interviewed the owner/managers of our favourite Myoko Lodges.  Here is what Brendon & Daniel from Base Camp The Lodge, had to share with World Snowfaris.  Any local tips you want to know, just ask this knowledgeable crew.

Snow:  What brought you to this part of the world to have your own lodge/s?

Brendon:  Many years of working and skiing in Japan

Daniel:  Travelled all over Japan for 8 years, was looking to buy a house, but bought a lodge instead.

Snow:  What nationality are you and your staff?

Base Camp:  Predominately Australian, we have two Japanese staff as well.

Snow:  What’s most unique about your property/location?

Base Camp:  Quiet forest feel with warm Australian hospitality.  We are a Family friendly place, that has been freshly renovated with Western Style comforts. We have a restaurant, bar and plenty of chill-out space as well. We have plenty of space around us for parking as we are away from the congestion found within the main streets of the other resorts.

Snow:  What is your go-to favourite food/restaurant/bar?

Brendon:  My kids call it the greasy table restaurant but its great local food and sorry don't know its Japanese name.

Daniel:  We have our own Bar, and my favourite food in our restaurant is the variety we have Like Pork Belly, Roast Beef, Thai Curries, Eggs Benedict, French Toast, and a dessert bar fit for a variety of people.

Snow:  We’re asking for secrets now… but please can you highlight your number one ski runs and why?

Brendon:  Lotte Arai and Seki Onsen and Suginohara

Daniel:  Seki Onsen. On Powder days, it is a natural bowl. But Akakura Kanko is great for our first-timers and guests with little children.

Snow:  Which month is your fave (Dec-Apr) and why? Any special festivals on the calendar for next season?

Brendon:  Late Feb- March no crowds, fresh snow and blue skies.

Daniel:  January. It brings in the New Year and there are plenty of festivals to attend as well.

Snow:  What is your top spot for a weekend away or end of season holiday?

Brendon:  Thailand or Bali

Daniel:  Byron Bay

Snow:  What new projects/lodge improvements are on the agenda for next season?

Base Camp:  New Bathrooms and possibly larger bar lounge area

Snow:  Can you share a quirky fact we may not know about you or your staff?

Brendon:  I can cook as well as all the other jobs around the lodge :)

Daniel:  Its a bit cliché, but we really do like to give our guests the best time possible; through food, local knowledge and a relaxed environment.

Snow:  Great catching up again guys, we look forward to great reviews from our next season guests as per usual.  Cheers, World Snowfaris Team.
