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.
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!
In case you are more of a backcountry skiing person, check out 1+ Days Backcountry Ski Tour in Hokkaido, a great program I also offer at Hokkaido!
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.
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.
* If you are interested in this great ski experience, please get in touch with me.
In case of bad weather / conditions (including road conditions), the trip itinerary may be altered and/or date change can be discussed. Riding on the guide’s car is considered as ride sharing and thus will only covered under normal car insurance. The guide’s responsibility and liability is only applicable from the departure from the start of the approach path until our return to the same point. All participants must have individual insurance which specifically covers backcountry splitboarding. For any injuries in the mountains, the guide will not be liable and will need to be paid by your own means
JMGA Mountain Guide
I was born in Kitami city in east Hokkaido. I grew up loving outdoor sports, skiing, and mountain climbing. I now lives in Sapporo and I have been a guide for the last 15 years.
I have accumulated vast experience in mountaineering in both Japan and abroad. I have served on the Canadian Ski Patrol and I have a wealth of experience skiing, rock climbing, and mountain climbing all over the world including Europe, North America, and Nepal.
I pride myself on my skill and experience rock climbing during the summer and backcountry skiing in the winter months. I have climbed Mt. McKinley in the U.S., Mt. Manaslu and Mt. Ama-Dablam, in Nepal, The Matterhorn, Mont Blanc, Chamonix, in Europe and Insubong in Korea.
Please contact me if you want to experience Japan walking, climbing or skiing! I will be very happy to guide you here.
i did cancel my oversease trip due to coronavirus concerns and it being a bad season in japan. will come back in january next year to try.
We had a wonderful day with Yasuko. He was very informative and spoke English very well. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great time ski touring or split boarding Mt. Yotei
Yasuko was very knowledgable about the area. She tailored our outings based on our requests, and we had great fun in the mountains near Rusutsu and Yotei.
Had a great trip with Yasuko! The trip was well-organized and we were able to customize it to our preferences. Gorgeous scenery and delicious food--couldn't ask for anything more.
This trip was great! Yasuko was very helpful and friendly and brought us to a beautiful crag with many climbs that were an appropriate difficulty for us to try. The climbs were extremely fun; the approaches were totally reasonable; and the crag was shockingly uncrowded. Yasuko also found us an inexpensive but delightful campground and did everything to make our trip successful and fun.
