Description

Join me for one or several days of backcountry skiing / ski touring in the area of Sapporo, on Hokkaido island, in Japan.

The mountains all around have very light powder snow and great forests that will make the experience unique! We have this type of snow because of the cold winds that come from North China and Siberia. In fact, the amount of snow that falls every year here is very impressive!

Depending on the snow and weather conditions, as well as your wishes, we will pick up the best spots to go skiing.

There are many spots to go either backcountry or off-piste skiing in the surroundings of Hokkaido’s famous ski resorts, like Sapporo Teine, Sapporo Kokusai, Kiroro, Niseko, Rusutsu, Yubari, Kamui, Furano, Tomamu, Sahoro. Our objectives: deep snow and no track!

We will ski between 6 and 8 hours a day.

Besides, you will enjoy delicious food and natural hot springs (onsen) which are part of the Japanese culture.

Please contact me if you want to go skiing in Hokkaido. It would be unique experience!

I also organize other trips in Japan, like climbing Mount Fuji and canyoning in the Kuwaun-nai river.
