Surrounded by the northern Japan Alps, the Hakuba area is absolutely breathtaking. And there are a number of great descents on those peaks for you to enjoy. And because those peaks are so close, and most of which can be accessed by comfortable lifts, even with the trip lasting just a single day, you will get to choose from a number of them.
Some of the peaks in the area include Mount Ootomi (2,106m), Mount Shiratake (2,541m), Mount Korenge (2,766m) and more.
When it comes to which descents we will choose many factors will be considered. Those factors include weather conditions, snow conditions and your skill level.
Since we will be skiing on peaks in the Hakuba backcountry, it is important that participants on this trip have prior experience in similar environments. Also, you should be in good physical condition as well.
Enjoying the descents of the Hakuba backcountry is a great opportunity to not only experience great skiing, but also bask in spectacular views. So if you would like to join me on this full day trip, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.
Would you like to enjoy a ski touring adventure on the legendary Mount Fuji? Then come and join me on this unforgettable full day trip.
There are comfortable accommodation options in Hakuba that I would be happy to recommend to you.
I am an IFMGA mountain guide, also certified by the JMGA, born in Slovenia. Slovenia is known as one of the major sporting countries in the world - I used to compete at the Olympics representing Slovenia in Cross-country Skiing. After I left Slovenia, I travelled all over the world and ended up in Japan, where I have now lived for more than 20 years, mainly because I love the beautiful Japanese mountains too much, and I feel privileged to be able to enjoy these mountains through the entire four seasons.
I am based at the foot of the Japan Alps, in Nagano Prefecture. In the winter, we go climbing or skiing around Mt. Fuji or Yatsugatake and in the summer, we can enjoy shower-climbing or canoeing. It is my absolute pleasure to also take you and guide you in my home country in Slovenia.
In addition to guiding the mountains, I also enjoy having the opportunity to teach mountain climbing skills to every level of climbers. This is because I want everyone to enjoy Japanese mountains safely.
I am the first non-Japanese mountain guide registered with the Japan Mountain Guide Association. Please contact me if you would love to have great experiences in the mountains in all seasons with me!
