More Info

Located roughly 100 kilometers southwest of Tokyo, Mt Fuji is perhaps Japan’s most prominent symbol. While it is most popular as a climbing destination, backcountry skiing opportunities are ample here as well.

The peak boasts a 1.300 meter vertical descent that is generally covered in copious amounts of high quality powder throughout the winter. Descending from the top is, therefore, one of the most popular options. This route requires an advanced level of backcountry skiing and takes up an entire day.

However, other backcountry skiing routes are possible too, including circumnavigating the mountain from a bit farther down as well as exploring the Aokigahara forest.

Cveto guided my boyfriend and I up Mt Fuji. Our trip up was great, a beautiful day with good views. Cveto kept us at a good pace that felt comfortable and relaxed. We spent some time at the top admiring the view and the crater of Fuji. We skied/snowboarded down and had a fun adventure navigating the terrain. Cveto was safe and knowledgable and we were happy he was our guide! Thank you! Its a trip we wont forget!
