Enjoy splitboarding on great powder snow in Hokkaido! Join Yasuko, a JMGA mountain guide, in this adventure and practice this exciting activity for 1 to 7 days.

Not specified


1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May




During one full day or more, you will be able to enjoy splitboarding on the great powder snow in Hokkaido.

This trip, specially designed for splitboarding lovers is a great opportunity to visit one of the most famous winter destinations in Japan. The tour is comfortably adjustable: it can be arranged from 1 to 7 days depending on your agenda.

During this tour, you will be able to enjoy amazing descents after heating up your muscles through a full hike up the mountains for 2 to 5 hours. The landscape is breathtaking and you will never forget the feeling of immensity and silence you’ll get around these mountains.

Some of the backcountry areas you will splitboard on are Mount Yotei, Mount Yoichi, Mount Tokachi, between other volcanic mountains.

If you are planning to stay more than one day, I recommend you stay in Japanese style inn, relax in the Onsen hot springs and try Japanese traditional exquisite cuisine.

Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to try Hokkaido’s powder snow. Request to book this trip and join me during one or up to seven days. I’ll be glad to guide you through the best splitboarding routes!

Day 1: 1 Day Tour

We can decide our meeting point / time in advance accordingly to your needs. We will travel to the trailhead / ski resort to start our tour. After our tour, we can enjoy local Onsens (hot spring) to relax our tired muscles! I can drop you off at a place of your choice (within reason) at the end of the day.

Day 2 to 7: More than 1 day tour

If you would like to spend more days, we can arrange a longer tour. Similarly to the 1 Day tour, we will discuss our meeting point / time in advance. I can pick you up at the airport if you want, or at your hotels. Tour can be extended up to 7 days and like the 1 Day tour, I will drop you off anywhere you want at the end of tour.
