Description

Come and shred on some of Japan´s deepest powder in an unforgettable eight-day ski touring program spread over Nagano and Niigata! Take your skiing to the next level on the backcountry runs that make it a must-see destination for any snow traveler.

The Nagano Prefecture is located on the island of Honshu, and is well-known for its mountain ranges and natural terrain. Among the vast number of national parks and national parks, nine of Japan´s 12 tallest mountains are here, and it´s low population density makes it a perfect snowy getaway in the winter.

Its next-door neighbor, the Niigata Prefecture, is a popular tourist destination as well. It, too, has numerous national and natural parks to draw attention to itself, but the main attraction is tourism based around skiing.

Thanks to the 1998 Winter Games, Nagano has become a household name when it comes to snow sports and activities. The region has been developed around such attractions, and visitors flock to the mountains and resorts for R and R… and to ski and board on the world-renowned snow.

Your adventure is tucked away in the slopes of these two prefectures, starting in Hakuba and culminating in Myoko. Combining the luxury of Japanese hospitality with unbelievable snow runs, your time here will leave you with memories to last a lifetime – and then some.

Hakuba has notably deep powder, and ski touring the steep inclines is a rare experience you won´t likely have in many other places. You will have run after run of perfect snow, an equally true asset in Myoko to go hand-in-hand with its phenomenal tree skiing. Both backcountry locations have pure, untouched powder, so you are guaranteed eight days of dreamy ski touring.

I have hand-picked both accommodations, and they are sure to please. Their proximity to the runs and the local activity make it a perfect segue into relaxing and enriching evenings.

I know these areas extensively, so I can place you in the best place to tour every day we are out in the snow. I know the safest, most exciting, and unforgettable runs to make this trip one of the greatest experiences of your life.

Book this trip NOW and see why the backcountry of the Northern Alps in Japan is a ski tourist´s paradise!

I can also take you exclusively to Hakuba, or similarly take you only to Myoko. Let me know what you can do, and we´ll get you out in the snow!
