Description

When it comes to an all encompassing splitboarding experience in Japan, this 9 day tour in Hokkaido can’t be beat. Venturing from Niseko to Asahidake, you will get to see a great deal of the country’s best splitboarding locations. You will also get to see a number of the country’s best winter highlights, from peaks and resorts, to onsens (hot springs) and beautiful back country spots.

Every day of this amazing trip will provide you with a different experience. Hence giving this trip an adventurous feeling.

The powder throughout Hokkaido is incredible. And we will go to where that powder is best. The trip will begin in Niseko, where you will get to enjoy 2 days of great splitboarding descents. From there, we will make our way to Hokkaido’s Mount Fuji: Yotei-San (1,898m). Depending on weather conditions, you may get to enjoy a thrilling 1,500 metre descent from the top of the peak to the bottom. After a day in Sapporo, we will then make our way to Asahikawa. Once there, you will get to enjoy more fantastic powder before settling in for the night, and enjoying another onsen.

From Asahikawa, you will get to enjoy splitboarding at yet another great Hokkaido peak, Asahidake (2,291m). After that, you will get to experience 2 days of great back country splitboarding in Furano-Dake and Sapporo, before returning home.

There is a lot to do on this amazing trip. And there is a lot to see, as well. The views are breathtaking and the descents are a lot of fun. The winter activity possibilities in Hokkaido are plentiful, and on this 9 day splitboarding tour, you will get to enjoy several of them. All you have to do is send me a request. It would be my pleasure to guide you.
