Who wants to ski down Mt Fuji, the most famous mountain in Japan?

Mt Fuji was designated a World Heritage Site in 2013. Backcountry skiing at Mt Fuji is the very activity that many skiers crave to do at least once in their lifetime.

If the conditions allow, it will be possible to enjoy super long run with granular snow of 1,300m altitude difference. At the summit, you can also ski down at its crater cone.

Please come join me to have a once in a lifetime experience of backcountry skiing in this beautiful sacred mountain of Japan.

We will hike-up around 7-8 hours in a day, so the participants need to have enough good fitness to walk in long hours.

And, I recommend you to stay overnight in the car on the day before the tour at the fifth station for preventing altitude sickness.

The required technical level is advanced, skiing on advanced slopes. The altitude difference is 1,300m. You need to be in good physical condition for hiking-up 7-8 hours in a day. Besides, you need good backcountry / ski touring experience with hike ups in skins / snowshoes and crampons.

There might be a photographer joining the group. Even if a photographer doesn’t join the tour, I will be taking photos of the trip.

Do you find this unique trip tempting? Then please contact me for more information and let’s live an unforgettable day! I also offer longer tours, as this 3-day ski tour in Mt Tateyama. If you would like to have another peak-hunting ski tour, I offer 1-day backcountry ski in Mt Norikura. Please check it out!

About the Guide

 
 

I am a backcountry ski guide with JMGA hiking level 2 and ski / snowboard guide level 2 certifications, based in Hakuba.
I was born in Aichi prefecture in Japan and started snowboarding in my early teens. Before I knew it, I was snowboarding everyday in the winter and in my final year of high school, I moved to Iwate prefecture in Tohoku (northern tip of Honshu, known for big snow falls) to freeride everyday. I became a professional snowboarder, and since 2002, I have been a ski / snowboard guide based in Hakuba.

I wanted to share the experience and fun I have had in the mountains with many other people in a safe manner with the right education and so I started my own backcountry guide company in 2012.

Myself and all the other guides at my guide company are on splitboards and so we welcome snowboarders and skiers alike. Given my snowboarding background, I know how difficult it could be for a snowboarder to follow a skier's line!!

I'm also trained and certified by Japan Avalanche Network and Wilderness First Aid, and am a member of Japan Emergency Rescue Team.

When I'm unavailable the guides at my guide company that I trust, with sufficient Avalanche training, Wilderness First Aid as well as much guiding experience at my guide company (some with JMGA certification as well) will be able to guide you.

Please contact me if you're in Hakuba and want to explore the backcountry of the beautiful North Japan Alps, away from the ski resorts!!
