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.
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!
