Description

Come explore the Niseko backcountry terrain in the beautiful Japanese island of Hokkaido with this amazing 3-day program.

Hokkaido, and Niseko in particular, are famous worldwide for their fantastic powder snow. During these amazing 3 days, you’ll get to discover why everybody else is talking about it!

We’ll also attempt to summit Mt Yotei (1898m). We’ll pick the day when conditions are more appropriate for the ascent to maximize our chances of getting to the summit. The descent that follows will be memorable: it is the longest in Hokkaido!

On the remaining 2 days, we’ll pick the spots with the best snow conditions, taking into account your level and wishes. I can guarantee 3 days of complete bliss, skiing on the most perfect powder.

I’ll take a maximum of 4 participants with me. If you’re part of a larger group, I can bring another guide with me.

This program is suitable for skiers of all levels since the it can be adapted to different skill levels. If you are a beginner, I can teach you how to use ascent and avalanche gear and teach you how to ski in deep powder snow.

During the months of January and February, the probability of summiting / skiing from the summit of Mt Yotei is very low. In fact, because I consider it as highly avalanche prone during these months, there is a good chance we may decide not go at all.

If you’d like to come discover the backcountry terrain of the Niseko mountains, contact me now. I’m a local guide and will take you to all the best spots in the area!

I also offer a 1-day ascent of Mt Yotei. It is a good alternative if you are short on time.

Disclaimer

In case the guide decides that your skills and or fitness is not suitable for the climb/ski program, then the guide can decide to turn around. In such case there will be no refunds.

About the guide

guide profile img

Hello! I’m a qualified Austrian mountain ski guide, a ski instructor as well as a alpine and ski guide with the Japan Mountain Guide Association (JMGA). I’ve lived 7 years in Austria, mainly as a ski instructor. I then became a mountain ski patrol in Tateyama in Japan, a heli ski guide in New Zealand, a chief guide at Niseko Hanazono Powder Guides, an assistant director of Niseko International snow sports school, and ultimately have started ski guiding independently since 2013.

I value the fundamentals of skiing as sports; to enjoy the snow mountains in a stylish, free and safe manner, in both private and as work. The best outcome is when both the client and guide can have fun, and for this, I am quite particular about not only guiding but also in technical / skills aspects and selection of appropriate equipment. I am an alpine skier but also enjoy telemark skiing. In summer, I have enjoyed surfing for a long time. Whether it be on waves, on mountains or on asphalt, if there’s enough steepness then I love to ‘glide’, which is my motto.

Please join me in gliding my backyard - which is the front and backcountry of Niseko!
