Description

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 will offer 3-day backcountry ski in Mt Yarigatake. Please check it out!

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.

Please note that if I am unavailable to guide you then another guide in my team will be able to guide you.
