Description

These Mount Yotei splitboarding tours in Hokkaido will take you exploring one of Japan’s best-kept secret powder slopes!

Mount Yotei (1898m) is an inactive volcano located in Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan. It has a very similar shape as the famous Mount Fuji, but it’s less crowded, so its slopes have much more powder to enjoy! Plus it has the longest backcountry runs on the island.

The way up to the summit usually takes between 5 and 8 hours. The effort is totally worthwhile because an incredible 700 m wide crater is waiting for you to enjoy its view, and the scenery all the way is amazing.

Plus the best is yet to come! Beautiful slopes with deep gullies and the best powder in the world lie right in front of you. The way down will definitely be a memorable ride!

Finally, after a long snowboard or ski day, you’ll relax in a traditional Japanese Onsen (hot spring) and try the delicious local cuisine.

We can do this for as many days as you want. I guarantee that once you experience this adventure, you ‘ll want to keep on doing it forever!

So send me a request to book this Mount Yotei splitboarding tour in Hokkaido and let’s start planning your next holiday together.

More info

Equipment: renting ski equipment in Japan is not easy but I can try to do it for you. I will need you to give me the model and the size of the DYNASTAR boots that fit your feet.

Weather conditions need to be ideal for this splitboarding trip to work, as visibility, wind and avalanche conditions are all major factors which may prevent us from being able to reach the top of the volcano. The conditions can change very quickly, I may be obliged to turn back to ensure everyone coming back home safely, this is part of the game.

We had a brilliant couple of days with Jun. At a difficult time in not the best season for Hokkaido, Jun was able to sniff out unexpected powder stashes and we skied some great snow! Really nice guy as well!

Jun is an outstanding guide, a true expert in his field. He was attentive to our needs and desires and very ably provided us with a fantastic experience skiing in the Asahikawa area backcountry. I will book other trips with him and highly recommend him to others!

Jun did an incredible job guiding us through Daisetsuzan National Park. He was attentive, friendly and courteous. His knowledge of the local flora, fauna, and landscape was superb (that rock garden in particular left a deep impression on me). His cooking was superb. And, we felt like we experienced aspects of the Japanese outdoors and culture that are very hard to reach. Andy and I had a phenomenal time.

Jun was a very safe and knowledgeable guide for our one day skiing trip for Yotei. He knew lots about the snowpack and the local wildlife and trees. We felt safe the entire time and really appreciated the pace he went at. Would recommend!
