1+ day Backcountry powder skiing on Honshu, Japan (near Nagano)
Backcountry and powder skiing in Japan, 10 days in Nagano and Niigata
Naoki, JMGA certified mountain guide, invites you to spend 2 days in the late spring backcountry skiing the best slopes of beautiful Tateyama. A trip to remember!
Why don't you finish spring with this backcountry ski camp tour in Tateyama?
Backcountry ski in Tateyama is the best way to close the snow season in Japan. This is the time of granular snow, and in the area we have an amazing quality. It makes ski smooth and allows to enjoy the best conditions of the season.
Besides, you will marvel at the stunning scenery from an elevation of over 2400 meters.
In this occasion I planned a 2-day program. There are many options for this tour, but in all cases it will be highly entertaining. We will determine the exact program depending on your wishes and level. A great option is to ski down to the Lake Kurobe side. Please note that in this case an extra guide will join us.
We will spend the night at a mountain hut in the beautiful spring mountain of Tateyama. And we can also relax in the onsen after the tiring and rewarding ski day.
Tempted to try late spring backcountry ski in Tateyama? Then please request to book this trip and I will start making the arrangements! It will be my pleasure to guide you along these beautiful slopes. I also love guiding my friends and clients in Hokkaido, you can check out this 1-day powder ski tour.
