Come enjoy Sapporo’s backcountry terrain, and its amazing powder, for one or more days with this off piste snowboarding and splitboarding trip in Hokkaido.

Hokkaido is the northernmost island of Japan. It is famous for having some of the best quality snow in the world! Plus it has majestic mountains with an incredible backcountry terrain to explore. Sapporo is the biggest city of the island and there are lots of spots around it to go searching for the best powder!

That’s why I’ve designed an open program to meet all your expectations! Depending on the snow and weather conditions we’ll decide the best possible option for you.

We can enjoy the backcountry terrain close to one of the many ski resorts in the area, like Sapporo Teine, Sapporo Kokusai, Kiroro, Niseko, Rusutsu, Yubari, Kamui, Furano, Tomamu, Sahoro. Or we can skin up and go splitboarding to find the virgin slopes a bit further away. It will be your choice!

The plan is to ride between 6 and 8 hours a day, for as many days you wish!

So please, send me a request if you want to join me in this amazing off piste snowboarding and splitboarding program in Hokkaido.

Both snowboarders and skiers are welcomed!
