Hakuba Ski Touring and Backcountry Skiing Week


Japanese snow is just right, abundant, fluffy, a dream. Just outside of Nagano lies Hakuba, a lovely village in the Japanese Alps. And also, one of the best spots for ski lovers like yourself looking for great alpine runs and tree skiing landscapes. On this one week Hakuba ski touring and backcountry skiing trip I will show you some of its best slopes!

We will begin our tour in Hakuba proper. It takes around 3-5 hours to get there from Tokyo airport and is quite straightforward. Once there, we will be staying at the Hakuba Powder Lodge. This will be a great spot from which to kick start every morning before hitting the snowy peaks. We will begin by skiing in the resorts. Then, as we advance we will look for some backcountry opportunities. Weather, fortunately is usually very favorable in this respect. Also, you might catch sight of some snow monkeys when we are out skirting the trees. Additionally, you will get to eat some great sushi and experience the beautiful Japanese culture.

In terms of difficulty, Hakuba offers different terrains that are suitable for different levels. Consequently, we can adapt the tour to suit your needs and preferences. It is of course important that you have a good fitness level because we will be out skiing all day for many days in a row. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you.
