I invite you to join me for 1 or more daysof 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).
- if taxi is used, then this needs to be covered by client (JPY 2000-3000 per ride). This is if you choose to do a route where we finish at a different place to where we started
- guide’s transport expense JPY 10,000 (because I don't live in Hakuba)
- guide’s accommodation expense JPY 4000 per night for Hakuba, JPY 6000-7000 per night for Myoko
- if there are more than 3 clients then I will need to rent a car. The cost of rental car will be added to the expense too
What People are Saying about Japan Mountain Guides-
The reviewer did not leave a comment
Jun is a responsible and reliable guide. He is also knowledgeable on the local flora and fauna and managed to show us quite a few interesting alpine flowers, birds and animals. He is kind and helpful and converses well in English. I will not hesitate to recommend him to any anyone needing an English speaking guide in Japan.
Just back from Hakuba –Japan and I’m so pleased to confirm we got such a great experience with Iwao who has provided a service above all expectations. Indeed assisting a family confronted to a new environment requires a certain level of patience and attention and all the family appreciated his sense of responsibilities and seriousness which allowed us to really enjoy this region by experiencing touring, hicking and of course skiing in immaculate powder. Iwao was very discreet but always acted to ensure we could take the best of all Hakuba mountains could offer to us during these 5 days.This experience will for sure remain in all our minds for long and this will be mainly thanks to Iwao ! Best, Arnaud
We had a wonderfull ski touring trip with Iwao in Gunma. Iwao brought us in various beautifull landscapes to found very good spring snow. He is a very professional guide that can adapt to clients will and conditions! We had great time sharing our experiences about nature and mountains. The second day, we had a long tour with beautiful views on gunma\'s region and finissing along a river in an amazing forest. It was great fun to wait the last train in the midel of nowhere at sunset to come back to our village! Iwao has perfectly organised the trip bringing me to nice local onsen, restaurant and hôtel! Wonderfull trip to recommand!
