Kyoichi Karino


Ski Guide- Sapporo, Japan



I would like to welcome you to the Hokkaido backcountry!

My name is Karino Kyoichi, I was born in Hokkaido in 1979 and I have spent all my life dedicated to backcountry skiing. In terms of certifications, I have a JMGA ski guide level 2 and trekking guide level 2 license. I have also participated in the following demanding ski expeditions: Muztagh Ata (7546m) Ski Expedition, Mt.Rishiri West Wall First descent; Patagonia Darwin Mountains Sea Kayaking & Ski Expedition; Mt.Rishiri Yamunai-Zawa First descent; and Denali southwest wall (6190m) descent. All of these experiences, complemented with my professional training, have led me to now share all that I know and love about the mountains.

Join me, and I will show you landscapes that will take your breath away where you will find fresh, untouched powder for unforgettable runs.

I speak Japanese and basic English.

I look forward to seeing you and being your guide!
