Do you want to find powder, lots of it? Then join me on this freeride ski trip in Hokkaido, Japan, touring around the island to go to the best spots! I designed this unusual trip in the country of the rising sun.
Snow of a quality and quantity that you have never seen before! We ski in the forests, so dense that we feel we are alone. We also ski at very low altitudes, near the sea, in unique landscapes.
During lunch, we can enjoy delicious noodle soup in the local restaurants. I chose to be based around Furano and Niseko, the local Chamonix. The accommodations are very comfortable, and the location allow us to also enjoy the evenings. But before the after-ski and dinner, we go to the onsen for some relaxation.
Some of the highlights of this trip in Japan are:
– a good skiing rhythm, we are not here to relax!
– discovering the best freeride spots in Hokkaido
– days with incredible runs in beautiful forests
– quality accommodation
– comfortable minibus transfers during the whole trip
