Description

Do you want to find powder, lots of it? Then join me on this freeride ski trip in HokkaidoJapan, 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

Do you find this trip interesting? Then please contact me, you can join one of the planned trips, but we can also set new dates for your group!

Accommodation

3* hotel with breakfast (double room). Single rooms may be available, contact me for pricing information, keep in mind that accommodation in Japan is very expensive.

Disclaimer

This is an example of freeride and ski touring in Japan. The weather and snow conditions, as well as the level of the participants, may make me modify the program or the order of the itinerary, in different areas. IMPORTANT: if you are joining a group, please be aware that I need a minimum of participants to guarantee the departure. You’ll be notified the latest 21 days before the starting date in case I need to cancel because of a lack of participants. Your money will then be transferred back.

More info

Group size: 6 to 8 people. Breakfast is included. I can loan you technical equipment (AVD, shovel and probe). Technical level: For good skiers in all snow. We have a good rhythm during the ski days. There may be some short steep passages. It's possible to make short ascents on skins (no more than 45 min per day and you don't need to have ski touring experience). To carry: a light bag with what you need for the day. Calculate around 250€ for the lifts for the 7 days, which are not included in the price. I recommend you to have cancellation insurance. Search and repatriation insurance is mandatory. I propose you to hire insurance through Europ Assistance upon booking the trip with me.
