Description

Would you like to ski down Mt Fuji, the most famous mountain in Japan? Then let me take you on a unique backcountry adventure in this stunning Japanese landmark!

Backcountry skiing in Mt Fuji mountain is a dream come true for any skier.  If the conditions allow, it is possible to enjoy a super long run with granular snow of 1,300m altitude difference. Furthermore, at the summit, you can also ski down at its crater cone.

On this program, we will spend around 7-8 hours out on the mountain. Furthermore, our trip will involve uphill skinning/ hiking with snowshoes and crampons. Therefore, you will need to have a very good fitness level to join and have advanced technical skills. Additionally, I recommend you arrive one day early to prevent altitude sickness. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you and we may also have a photographer come along to take pictures of this unforgettable adventure!

Please contact me for more information and let’s start planning an unforgettable day! 

I also offer longer tours, such as this 3-day ski tour in Mt Tateyama.

Disclaimer

Basic Precautions a. Lift fee will be approximately JPY1,000-2,000 per person on site, when we will utilize it. And, please split the transportation cost among the participants, when you take taxi after descending the mountain. b. We need to prepare all kinds of unexpected events in a middle of vast wilderness. The guide will predict all risks within safety-first, and eliminate the danger as possible. However, it is still difficult to be perfectly secure. Please keep safety behavior as participants, and be aware of self-responsibility. c. Please make sure that you follow the guide’s instruction on site. And, please note that the guide has the authority to change routes, and to stop the tour. d. By any possibility, when an accident or medical crisis happens, I might ask you to help. Also, when the other group needs to be helped, we will take priority to rescue them first beyond continuing our tour. e. If there are damages or losses caused by accident or illness, it is referable to individual responsibility except the case which it occurred by the guide's deliberate serious fault. The guide does not have responsibilities to cover more than the emergency treatment within insurance. f. During our tour (Bantei Tour), I will keep the pace for the snowboarders, because they have less mobility than the skiers. g. Please do not participate to the tour if you do not feel well. h. At the meeting point, the participants can use Bantei facilities like bathroom, changing room, and you can park at our parking. However, please do not park before 7:00 a.m. for snow removal.

About the guide

guide profile img

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!!
