  • Spend a full day skiing on the gorgeous Mount Yotei in Hokkaido.

  • Explore and enjoy the lovely town of Niseko.

  • Experience the thrill of the longest descent in all of Hokkaido.


For a full day, I would like to guide you on an exciting ski touring adventure on Mount Yotei (1,898m) in Niseko, on the Japanese island of Hokkaido.

The island of Hokkaido in the north of Japan is a haven for winter sports. In particular, the town of Niseko, which rests right at the foot of Mount Yotei, is a great place to enjoy some great skiing. Furthermore, there is a variety of wonderful hot springs, or onsens, that you can enjoy in Niseko, where you can rest your body after the day of skiing.

The descent you will get to enjoy on Mount Yotei is the longest descent in the entire island of Hokkaido. Thus giving you an incredible skiing experience.

Due to the independent nature of Mount Yotei, the weather can be volatile. As a result, I will make sure that the weather, as well as snow conditions on the mountain, are ideal before we embark on this adventure.

It is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition. It is also important that participants have prior skiing experience as the descent on Mount Yotei can be challenging.

One of the most splendid skiing peaks in all of Japan, Mount Yotei is a great place to enjoy the snow. If you would like to spend the day skiing on this lovely mountain just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

Would you like to enjoy some ski touring around the Hakuba backcountry? Then come and join me on this full day trip.


There are several comfortable accommodation options in Niseko that I would be happy to recommend to you.

About the guide

guide profile img

I’m an international IFMGA mountain guide; also the first non-Japanese mountain guide certified by the JMGA (Japan Mountain Guide Association); born in Slovenia.

My country is small but well known in the world as strong in sports and mountaineering. I use to compete as Olympic team member and on World Cup competitions as a Cross-country skier. After I left Slovenia and traveled all over the world, I ended up in Japan. I married beautiful native lady, and have lived here for 30 years. I love Japanese mountains and feel privileged to be able to enjoy these mountains trough the entire four seasons.

I’m based at the foot of Japan Alps; convenient place in winter for ski touring from Nagano to Hokkaido, winter mountaineering or ice climbing at Yatsugatake, and of course ascending the symbol of Japan Mt.Fuji.

In summer Japan is a great place for hiking, alpine climbing or popular shower-climbing and some fine sport/free climbing year around.

Since 2013, I’m working on NHK (Japanese national TV) programs, introducing Japan culture and outdoor activities, climbing skiing etc. Check it out at the link below the recent one about BC skiing.

It is my absolute pleasure also to take and guide you in my home country Slovenia. In addition to guide in the mountains, I also enjoy having the opportunity to teach mountain climbing skills to every level of climbers, here in Japan. This is because I wish everybody to be SAFE on the mountains.
Please contact me on E&S if you would love to have great experience, as well as a tailor-made plan for other mountains and sport climbing all over SE Asia, EU, South any season!
