At Evergreen Outdoor Center our highest priorities, as stated in our company mission are safety, environment, education and enjoyment in nature. We are committed to keeping our guests, team members and families safe, especially during the current Coronavirus pandemic.
We have adjusted our operations and updated our policies to help reinforce safety and cleanliness while maintaining social distancing to allow people to reconnect with nature to heal their body, mind and spirit.
Evergreen Outdoor Center has closed it’s operations to the pubic from March 23rd to enable our foreign staff to head home to their various countries of residence, leaving only our core staff of local outdoor enthusiasts to continue working towards providing quality and safe experiences for our guests at a time that we are able to reopen.
We are hoping that the situation will allow us to reopen after a company wide break on April 29th with a volunteer clean up of Lake Aokiko, a crystal clear lake that we hold truly dear to our heart, followed by more quality Evergreen outdoor tours during the Goldenweek national holiday.Whether out exploring Hakuba’s beautiful and abundant natural spaces on one of our professionally guided adventures, or being greeted by our guest services team at one of our facilities, the health and safety of our guests is of the utmost importance to us. This is why we are already looking forward to providing more personalized programs with your own private guide to keep you and your loved ones safe and heathy when we do reopen our services.
We have always had strong policies in place to ensure our guests’ safety, but in light of the constantly developing Coronavirus situation we have expanded these policies and have made some adjustments to our operations to give our guests and team an even more comfortable and safe experience exploring the wonders of the Japanese Northern Alps.
We are serious about taking extra precautions to stop the spread of this virus by practicing regular hand washing and sanitization, we regularly sanitize and clean our equipment and work areas, we make hand sanitizer readily available to our guests and team members, and practice social distancing measures through providing private tours and on line registration.We have discounted our private tours to make our more personalized tour experiences even more attainable, and have adjusted our group tour operations with social distancing and increased hygiene in mind.
We hope that you will be able to join us soon for a tour in the fresh mountain air and beautiful nature of Hakuba.
