Niseko United in Hokkaido is officially Japan’s best ski resort and is 2.5 hrs away from Chitose International Airport. Come with me for an incredible day there!

Niseko mountain range is a group of 11 peaks. The most important of them is Niseko Annupuri, at 1308 m. Due to its proximity with the Sea of Japan, this is an area with an abundant amount of snowfall.

On this programme, I propose to take you for 4.5 hours of back country skiing with skinning up. I will decide the best location to go each day, depending on the weather and snow conditions.

This means you can confidently explore and ski tour the powder snow of the wonderful Niseko mountains backcountry without worrying about the weather!

In addition, I can also take you to Mt. Shiribetsu (1107 m) which is a little bit further away from Niseko (approx. 45 minutes by car).

I will provide you a safe, enjoyable and exciting experience, ideal for those wanting more than just regular, groomed slopes

Avalanche gear rental is included in the price. There is also free rental of skis, climbing skins and snowshoes. So please let me now if you’ll need them when you inquire.

Would you like to join me on this backcountry ski tour in Niseko’s deep powder snow and amazing terrain? Contact me! I will be glad to take you to the best backcountry spots in this area.

If you don’t like skinning up, you should consider this 1-day guided freeriding in Niseko.

About the guide

guide profile img

Hello! I’m a qualified Austrian mountain ski guide, a ski instructor as well as a alpine and ski guide with the Japan Mountain Guide Association (JMGA). I’ve lived 7 years in Austria, mainly as a ski instructor. I then became a mountain ski patrol in Tateyama in Japan, a heli ski guide in New Zealand, a chief guide at Niseko Hanazono Powder Guides, an assistant director of Niseko International snow sports school, and ultimately have started ski guiding independently since 2013.

I value the fundamentals of skiing as sports; to enjoy the snow mountains in a stylish, free and safe manner, in both private and as work. The best outcome is when both the client and guide can have fun, and for this, I am quite particular about not only guiding but also in technical / skills aspects and selection of appropriate equipment. I am an alpine skier but also enjoy telemark skiing. In summer, I have enjoyed surfing for a long time. Whether it be on waves, on mountains or on asphalt, if there’s enough steepness then I love to ‘glide’, which is my motto.

Please join me in gliding my backyard - which is the front and backcountry of Niseko!
