Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr


I invite you to join me for 1 or more days of backcountry skiing and enjoy fantastic runs on the steep alpine terrain of Hakuba and Myoko. 

With an annual snow fall of over 11 meters and amazing powder snow, the Valley of Hakuba is very popular among backcountry skiers. Myoko is a fantastic ski area, renowned for some of the best vertical and longest runs Japan has to offer.

According to your wishes and time available, we will be either in Hakuba or in Myoko ski areas. From there, we will set out for incredible freeriding or backcountry skiing tours in the Japan Alps. Amazing tree runs and steep coulouirs await us!

Located in Honshu, Japan’s central Island, the valley of Hakuba offers 10 ski resorts with more than 200 runs. It is worldwide famous for its amazing deep powder. A big plus is that it is possible to use the resorts lifts to access the backcountry.

This is a fantastic opportunity to explore the heart of the beautiful Japanese Alps, known all over the world for its incredible powder.

Find this trip tempting? Then send me a request and book your trip! We will start planning this skiing tour in Japan right now.

You can also check the 6-day ski tour that I also guide in Hakuba, with the possibility of enjoying its great hot springs (Onsen).
