Uncompromised powder seeking for skilled skiers
470,000 JPY per person
423,000 JPY ONLY! (10% OFF!)

If you are in good shape, familiar with "earning your turns" and do not mind a slightly less luxurious hotel or a last minute change and/or longer drives for the sake of skiing the best possible powder on the day then this trip is for you.

On this trip we can ski up to 7 days (with the option of resting one day if you get tired), and visit 5 or 6 different mountains around Hokkaido (most of them off the beaten tracks, so you get ALL the powder!). We can also do 2/3 days of medium/hard ski touring too if the whole group is on board - ski touring and backcountry safety equipment might be needed (can be rented) - and you will get to explore and unwind in Sapporo city on the final day if you wish. Includes at least one night in a mountain lodge  including dinner.

Max group size: 6 guests. Minimum: 2 guests.

Example itinerary: Kiroro, Yotei, Kokusai, Sapporo - Teine, Tokachidake, Asahikawa to rest (or Asahidake to ski), Kurodake, Furanodake (actual itinerary might change based on conditions)

The perfect blend of ski touring and lift access
510,000 JPY per person
433,500 JPY ONLY! (15% OFF!)

This trip is designed to blend lift-access and ski touring to access the best available powder snow on each day.

We will ski up to 7 days (with the option of resting one day if you get tired), and visit 5 or 6 different mountains around Hokkaido (some without any resort or ski lifts - just lodges and ski touring!). We will probably do 3/4 days of medium/hard ski touring so you are expected to be familiar with touring equipment and technique - ski touring and backcountry safety equipment can be rented if needed. You will get to explore and unwind in Sapporo city on the final day if you wish. Includes at least one night in a mountain lodge  including dinner.

Max group size: 5 guests. Minimum: 2 guests.

Example itinerary: Kiroro, Yotei, Kokusai, Sapporo - Teine, Tokachidake, Asahikawa to rest (or Asahidake to ski), Kurodake, Furanodake (actual itinerary might change based on conditions)

All the trips above require a GOOD level of ski/snowboard technique, in deep/fresh snow. The "Go All Out" also requires some previous ski touring experience. If you are a good level skier but feel like you need a little improvement on powder-specific technique or have never done ski-touring before, please consider one of our add-on clinics. The clinics can be taken just before the trips. 

Backcountry safety equipment (transceiver and backpack with shovel and probe) is mandatory on all trips and helmets are HIGHLY recommended (lots of tree skiing).
