Experience some of the finest untouched powder the world has to offer on this 4-day guided catskiing adventure in Shimamaki, Japan! That’s four full days of incredible skiing in the Karibayama mountain range, a beautiful Hokkaido destination on the Sea of Japan.

We have mind-blowing runs throughout the scenic Japanese backcountry of Hokkaido, and our single-day record is 13 total runs – 6,500 meters in total! Enjoy open alpine bowls and remain unencumbered by the terrain as you cruise the mountain.

Hokkaido is the most northern island of Japan. It is known for its outstanding skiing, and is a cultural hub that allows tourists and travelers a true Japanese experience. The Shimamaki region is home to hot springs and incredible seafood, as well as some of the most picturesque scenery in the entire country. From the ocean to the mountains, we will see it all.

And of course, the deep, undisturbed snow here is an experience of its own – you won’t have another ski trip quite like this ever again.

After epic days of backcountry skiing, we settle in for restful evenings that will leave you ready to shred the next day. The unique style and culture of this guided tour will make it that much more special.

This trip provides four long days skiing pristine terrain, and since we will have so much time out in the snow, it allows me to give you one of the best mountain experiences of your life.

Book this trip now to have the sweetest skiing adventure in the deepest powder around!

If four days is too long, go ahead and take a 2-day tour! Or talk to me about booking a private catskiing trip!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
