In Japan, there is quite the culture of "Ladies Who Lunch." Many women stay home with their kids after marriage, and, as such, Lady Specials abound.
This week, I found the jackpot: Ladies' Ski Day. It's quite a deal: You pay ¥1,000 for the day (about $12), but that is refundable when you return the ski key card. Yes, it's literally free.
A few friends and I headed up to Dynaland, an area about two hours away. There are tons of small resorts within a couple hours of Nagoya, in an area called Gifu. Nothing amazing, but fun, little hills you can ski in a day.
Add some snow, some sunshine, a McDonalds' breakfast sandwich (don't judge! nothing else is open before 7 in Japan!), and a tempura lunch and this was a lady special I could get behind.
