Highlights

 
  • Spend one or more days skiing at the Kiroro resort in Hokkaido.

  • Ideal for people looking for a more upscale skiing experience.

  • The resort is very family friendly, with plenty of fun for the kids.

 

Like all ski resorts in Hakkaido, Japan, the powder in the Kiroro ski resort is tremendous. However, unlike many of those resorts, the Kiroro resort is more of a destination resort with many upscale facilities. So if you are looking for that luxurious resort feeling on your skiing trip, then this spot will definitely fit your needs.

The selection of descents at the Kiroro resort makes it a great destination for one, or several days, if you have the time. And because of that variety, the resort is also ideal for people of all skiing levels. So from beginners to experts, you can be assured of a fantastic experience.

Another added advantage of the Kiroro resort is that it is very family friendly. That means there are plenty of activities for the kids to enjoy. Thus making this trip great for people who want to give their whole family a taste of great skiing.

With great slopes, a fun experience and luxury abound, the Kiroro resort makes for a great skiing adventure. If you would like to enjoy it for yourself, or with the family, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you and helping you have a great time.

About the Guide

 
 

I am an experienced IFMGA mountain guide, born and raised in Hokkaido, Japan. I started skiing when I was 3 and started climbing when I was 6. My high school years were spent in ski competitions and I joined mountaineering club at University, where I developed my ski mountaineering skills. I have been a ski instructor for Miura Dolphins founded by Yuichiro Miura (first ski descent of the Everest “The Man Who Skied Down Everest” and the oldest Everest summiting record holder at 80 years old) and also supported Yuichiro's Aconcagua ascent and ski descent in 1984 as a part of his 7 summits ski descent challenge.

I was inspired by the works of mountain guides in Chamonix when I visited there in 1983, and decided to start guiding as a mountain guide in Japan in 1989 to share my passion and experiences in outdoors sports with other people, as well as to offer instruction to people enjoying the mountains to be better climbers / skiers. I have also contributed to the proper training of JMGA (Japan Mountain Guides Association) guides and the affiliation of it to IFMGA. I am responsible for the pioneering of the climbing and backcountry skiing scenes in Japan.

My main guiding arena is alpinism, whether it be mountaineering or ski mountaineering, mainly in Hokkaido. I usually take a small group of people (2-5) for Sawanobori (canyoning up waterfalls), alpine climbing, ice climbing, and ski touring in the more remote areas of Japan.

I enjoy finding the best experience for each client accordingly to their physical abilities, preferences, and weather/conditions. I guide because I like watching and feeling that people are enjoying and having fun, and see how this buzz infects other people through skiing and climbing. I find this invaluable as a mountain guide.

There is more to Hokkaido than skiing lift accessible powder in January and February. Please reach out to me to find your own customised way to enjoy Hokkaido’s mountains, natures and culture!

Yuki Nagaya replaced Takao and did a perfect job. Daisetsuzan is very nice, scenery is tremendous and the trail is challenging. Onsen was available in all mountain huts. Apart from bring a great guide; Yuki prepares delicious food.

We had a wonderful time ice climbing despite some rather crazy weather conditions! Takao was great company, very clearly experienced in the area and equipped with all necessary equipment. He was always on time and made exceptional efforts to get us out to the ice and back safely to Sapporo. The onsen, river crossing and thigh-high snow trek were as important as the actual climbing to the whole experience. We highly recommend and hope to be back to the area for summer climbing!
