DEEP POWDER Snow Holidays have been of great assistance in putting in place all our conferences in Japan so far and is the principal agent for the SONS conferences in Japan. They play a pivotal role in organising the upcoming conferences in Japan and come highly recommended.

DEEP POWDER Snow Holidays will manage ALL your travel needs including airfares, accommodation and transfers to and from the ski resorts. DPT has support staff in Japan during winter, so it is best to have an Australian Travel Agent on your side if anything goes wrong whilst in Japan.
In addition, DPT can offer either the same or better accommodation choices and pricing if you are researching options yourself. Be sure to give them a call first and support our conference partners.

You will need to advise Deep Powder Tours that you are going to the Furano conference so that they can arrange transfers for you. 


Certificates of Attendance are issued to Delegates who have attended 50% or more of the sessions and at least three presentations of each session.

We encourage you all to consider joining us in Japan as the powder snow and cultural experience make it a “MUST DO”. For those attending, the success is also dependent on members offering to present at both Rusutsu and Furano, so please be involved. The option to Present at the Sessions is provided when registering and should your Presentation be accepted into the programme, a refund of $250AUD on your registration is provided following the Conference. You may offer to do more than one Presentation but the refund will remain limited to $250AUD in total. Participation is much appreciated as our previous programmes have been both enlightening and “world class”, often covering the full medical spectrum. The Programme is not available until all places are filled and Presenter Bios and Abstracts received.
