I propose you this 6-day backcountry ski roadtrip in Hokkaido! We will be travelling from Sapporo to Asahidake area, stopping by my selection of spots with the best condition and best quality of powder snow.
The roadtrip will be a mixture of classics you see in magazines and videos to some secret spots that I discovered through my persistent exploration! If you’re interest is in touring and skiing in untracked faces away from the crowds then you’ve reached the right place.
As a trained JMGA mountain and ski guide as well as through my guiding experiences I will take your mountain safety seriously.
A stomach full of delicious Japanese cuisine and a rejuvenating dip in the hot spring ‘onsen’ will prepare you for another full day of skiing! Such Japanese hospitality are not to be missed if you’re visiting this country!!
The itinerary of this tour will give you a full plate, from enjoying the open powder runs to experiencing powder skiing in between trees (trust me, it’s fun!) to greeting some steep terrains.
This an intermediate level trip, so you’ll need to have previous experience in backcountry skiing and to be a able to ski on advanced slopes.
Please contact me if you want to be a part of this adventure! I can also adapt this trip to you if you would like it to be shorter or longer. If you’re short on time, make sure you check out my shorter 3-day Hokkaido backcountry trip based around Asahidake. Or if you’d like to indulge in even more Hokkaido powder and culture then check my more complete 12-day trip in Hokkaido.
