4 Days

Mar, Apr, May




The Niseko Haute Route is a classic winter traverse in Hokkaido, Japan. Let me guide you through this amazing mountain adventure with this 4-day splitboarding tour.

Niseko is known around the world for its incredible ski resorts with large backcountry areas and the most perfect powder snow. It’s located in the slopes of Mount Yotei, 50 kms southeast of Sapporo, the biggest city in the Hokkaido island of Japan. 

This 4-day program is meant to connect the Annupuri Ski Resort in Niseko with Mount Raiden that lies in the western shores of the island.

There are many possible peaks and slopes that we can climb up and ride down all along the way: Weisshorn, Shakunage and Mekunnaidake.

Plus, once in the lodge, after a long day out in the snow, we’ll be able to relax in the local Onsens (hot springs) that will help you recover for the next morning.

So, if you are interested in exploring these amazing mountains and riding through the best powder in the world, please send me a request and we’ll start organizing this 4-day splitboarding tour in Niseko Haute Route together. Remember that both snowboarders and skiers are welcomed!

And if you want to try another great snowboarding experience in Hokkaido, please also check my 1+ day off piste snowboarding and splitboarding in Hokkaido.
