ZUICA Flagship Brand Store & In-House Rental
As Shiga Kogen’s premier accommodation, Hotel Grand Phenix offers guests an unrivaled choice of in-house services. Foremost among these, the hotel’s in-house ski/snowboard rental and ZUICA brand store provide guests with the resort’s best range of high quality ski, snow, and outdoor gear suitable for all seasons.
Grand Phenix Hotel is proud to partner with mountain wear brand ZUICA with the opening of their flagship store within the hotel. In partnering with Grand Phenix, ZUICA is celebrating mountain resort culture as embodied by the hotel’s heritage and Shiga Kogen’s abundant nature. Set deep within the resort and surrounding national park, Grand Phenix is the ideal location to realise ZUICA’s vision of enjoying the seasonal beauty of Shiga as a revitalising experience, in the comfort and style afforded by their designer brand and the history and service of the hotel.
ZUICA strikes a balance between modern life and time away with a seasonal range designed to fit with the city as much as it does in the mountains; a vision that allows for movement from one to the other with ease and an understanding that while your location might change, you want the same comfort and style no matter where you are.
As one of Japan’s leading outdoor brands, the ZUICA store is stocked with a wide range of outdoor gear including ski jackets, pants, and all other gear you need to stay warm and well-prepared for tackling Japan’s largest ski resort in winter or exploring the protected landscapes, flora and fauna of Shiga Kogen Highlands and broader Joshinetsu Kogen National Park in spring, summer and autumn.
The store is located on the hotel’s first-floor offering guests unmatched convenience and quality.
The hotel’s in-house ski rental is also stocked with a great selection of Japanese and international brand skis including Atomic, Head, Rossignol and Ogasaka. Not only does the hotel pride itself in the quality of its rental stock, pro-staff are focused on the meticulous maintenance of all available gear to give each guest the best possible experience on the mountain.
