  • Enjoy 4 days of great ski touring on Mount Rishiri north of Hokkaido.

  • Explore the island that bears the same name as the peak.

  • Bask in some of the best powder in all of Japan.


Positioned just north of the Japanese island of Hokkaido, the island of Rishiri is a fantastic place to visit. And on this 4 day trip, you will get to enjoy a ski mountaineering adventure on the peak that bears the same name as the island where it stands tall.

Every day of this 4 day trip will involve some fabulous skiing on the descents of Mount Rishiri. And because the powder on the island, much like the powder on Hokkaido, is so amazing, you can rest assured you will get to enjoy the best snow Japan has to offer.

There are no lifts on the island. As a result, this trip will involve some trekking. Moreover, to cover longer distances on flat terrain, we will also ride on snowmobiles. Thus giving you an added dimension of fun to this trip.

Ski mountaineering is a thrilling activity because it incorporates a tremendous amount of adventure, which can be challenging at times. However, the reward for that challenge is the thrill you will get to enjoy day after day and descent after descent.

Due to the physically taxing nature of this trip, participants should be in good physical condition. You should also have prior ski mountaineering experience as well.

On this 4 day ski mountaineering trip, you will get to enjoy the tremendous powder on Mount Rishiri. If you would like to join me, just send me a request.

I can also take you on a shorter, but equally enjoyable ski touring trip on Mount Yotei in Niseko, on the island of Hokkaido.


There are several comfortable accommodation options in Hokkaido, near Mount Rishiri that I would be happy to recommend to you.

About the guide

guide profile img

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!
