Why not enjoying backcountry ski at one of the most popular sites in the Japan Alps?
Mt Norikura is located in the southern side of North Japan Alps. We can enjoy backcountry skiing in scenic mountains reaching altitudes of about 3,000m. The peak of the Norikuradake area is Kengamine (3,026m). One of the reasons why Mt Norikura is popular among skiers is its easy access. Also, the great panorama view from the summit strongly attracts people.
First, we will go up to Kuraigahara (2,350m) by bus. And I will take you to the area where there are no other people. You can fully enjoy the experience in high grade granulate snow. If the weather allows, you will see the breathtaking views of Japan Alps and ski down on slope to Sanbon-taki (Three waterfall). Our tour will finish around 2:00-4:00 p.m.
You will love to spend a whole day backcountry skiing in the quiet slopes. Join me in Mt Norikura and have a great time!
For this trip, you don’t need an advanced technical level. But you need to be in good physical shape to endure a long hike-up. And finally, you need good backcountry / ski touring experience with hike ups in skins / snowshoes.
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 proposal tempting? Then please contact me for a fun day in the mountains! And if you are looking for a longer trip, check out my 3-day backcountry ski in Mt Yarigatake!
