Myoko is famous for deep powder, averaging about 13m of snow per season!
Myoko consists of 4 ski resorts; Akakura, Suginohira, Seki Onsen and Ikenotaira. It receives a large amount of snow owing to the precipitation collected from the sea of Japan nearby and the cold temperature. It has a varied terrain catering for beginners to advanced skiers, enjoying steep terrains and / or tree runs.
Mt Myoko sits in the Myoko-Togakushi Renzan National Park.
This area is also perfect for those looking for less crowd and more local / cultural experiences. There are onsen and guesthouses with local hospitality.
I can guide you on the enjoyable and beautiful backcountry terrains in this area. We will utilise both the lifts and also man powdered hiking to get to the best face / gully / slope for the day, depending on what kind of experience you like.
Please let me know what backcountry skiing /snowboarding experiences you have got, what kind of skiing / snowboarding you are after, and your downhill skiing / snowboarding levels, so that I can pick the best area for your needs! I can cater for those looking to progress in their ski touring as well as those wanting to get as much backcountry skiing experience in Japan!
