Uncompromised powder seeking for highly skilled skiers
440,000 JPY per person
396,000 JPY ONLY! (10% OFF!)
If you are in great shape, very used to "earn your turns" and do not mind a slightly less luxurious hotel or a last minute change and 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 will probably do 2 to 4 days of medium/hard ski touring too - ski touring and backcountry safety equipment is 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 (new for 2022-23): 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)
