1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar




If you are looking for adventurous winter holidays in Hokkaido, Japan, this trip is the perfect excuse! Specially designed for splitboarding lovers willing to take full advantage of their time, this trip offers a spectacular terrain to splitboard on, and lift assistance.

During the trip you won’t hike much. Instead, you will be able to use the lifting services in order to climb up the mountains and then enjoy great descents. This is a unique opportunity to get to know exciting slopes in one of the most famous Japanese winter destinations.

The trip can be arranged depending on your schedule: it is available on a 1 day basis or up to 7 days. In this opportunity, you will use gondola and lifts at ski resorts and perform splitboarding on powder snow on untracked terrains.

Remember that avalanche safety gears will be needed: shovel, beacon and probe. In case you don’t have these, you may rent them in our store.

Join me in this splitboarding tour in Hokkaido.  Request to book this trip and enjoy Japan’s powder snow! I’ll be glad to guide you through different routes.  

If you also love hiking, I offer this same trip without lift assistance. You may want to check out this other program:


Day 1: 1 Day Tour

We shall decide our meeting point / time in advance accordingly to your arrangements. We will then travel to the 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 multi day tour. I can pick you up at the airport if you want, or at your hotels. Tour can be extended up to to 7 days and 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.



More info

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
