Tateyama is a heavy snowfall area in the North of the Japan Alps, with peaks over 3000 meters. This place can only be reasonably accessed for backcountry skiing for a limited time each year, when ‘Kurobe Alpen Route’ (series of cable cars, electric buses etc.) is open. This is end of November, and from end of April until September.
It lays on the south east of the city of Toyama and it has two main areas: Raicho Valley and Gokurakuzaka.
Actually, this region is named after Tateyama mountain (Mount Tata). At 3015 m, this is one of the three holy mountains in the country.
During this 3-day trip, we’ll enjoy some exciting backcountry and ski touring in a unique and beautiful area of Japan!
This is a perfect destination for backcountry skiing from early season to late season. It also offers some great options for advanced skiers, so if you are one of them, don’t miss your chance!
Please, contact me if you want to join me for this trip. I’m sure we’ll have a great time, not only skiing but also enjoying some delicious Japanese food and its traditional onsen.
