  • Enjoy skiing down one of the most popular peaks in Japan.

 

Join me for an incredible adventure skiing down Mount Fuji, Japan’s highest and most famous mountain!

Please note that, due to weather and snow conditions, this ski descent can only be done from mid-April to the beginning of June. In these months, I also lead an offseason climb to the summit.

Lying in Honshu, the main island of the country, Mount Fuji’s conical figure has become a symbol of Japan. It’s a great attraction for climbers and also for skiers!

For this trip, I will pick you up from your hotel at Kawaguchi-ko area very early in the morning. Then, we’ll travel to the ascent point of Mount Fuji.

However, if you have your own transportation, we can meet at the car parking near our trailhead (I will tell you the exact point).

Reaching the summit will take us between 4 and 6 hours. After that, depending on weather conditions, we will descend on skis through the same route. You will definitely enjoy some fantastic views there!

Finally, we will return to the car parking around 3 or 4 PM and then I’ll take you back to your hotel in Kawaguchi-ko.

Please contact me if you want to organize a ski descent from Mt Fuji. I will be happy to take you there!

Another fantastic skiing place in Japan could be Hokkaido. Check out this trip!

About the Guide

 
 

I am an IFMGA mountain guide, also certified by the JMGA, born in Slovenia. Slovenia is known as one of the major sporting countries in the world - I used to compete at the Olympics representing Slovenia in Cross-country Skiing. After I left Slovenia, I travelled all over the world and ended up in Japan, where I have now lived for more than 20 years, mainly because I love the beautiful Japanese mountains too much, and I feel privileged to be able to enjoy these mountains through the entire four seasons.

I am based at the foot of the Japan Alps, in Nagano Prefecture. In the winter, we go climbing or skiing around Mt. Fuji or Yatsugatake and in the summer, we can enjoy shower-climbing or canoeing. It is my absolute pleasure to also take you and guide you in my home country in Slovenia.

In addition to guiding the mountains, I also enjoy having the opportunity to teach mountain climbing skills to every level of climbers. This is because I want everyone to enjoy Japanese mountains safely.

I am the first non-Japanese mountain guide registered with the Japan Mountain Guide Association. Please contact me if you would love to have great experiences in the mountains in all seasons with me!

Cveto guided my boyfriend and I up Mt Fuji. Our trip up was great, a beautiful day with good views. Cveto kept us at a good pace that felt comfortable and relaxed. We spent some time at the top admiring the view and the crater of Fuji. We skied/snowboarded down and had a fun adventure navigating the terrain. Cveto was safe and knowledgable and we were happy he was our guide! Thank you! Its a trip we wont forget!
