Description

In the island of Hokkaido, only 1000 km west of Sapporo, you’ll find Niseko, the most famous ski area in Japan. Would you like to enjoy freeriding in the deep powder snow of this area?

I propose to visit the United Ski Field, a Niseko ski resort with 11 access controlled back country / free ride areas.

Here, we’ll enjoy 4 hours of back and side country skiing with lift access provided and no skinning up.

This ski resort stretches from the northeast to the south side of Mount Annupuri (1,308 m.). The back country / free ride areas are lift-accessible, including the east side in some places. In addition, all areas in neighboring Niseko Moiwa are also a free ride zone (except for the south facing slopes.)

Installed throughout the ski resort are 11 gates for access to the back country / free ride areas. These gates are opened and closed depending on the daily weather and snow conditions. The back country areas are only accessible when these resort gates are open.

Many people from all over the world come to Niseko for the quality of its powder snow. However, it’s not easy to accurately judge each day’s conditions during your stay. That is why traveling with a mountain guide is preferable, if not essential!

Having a knowledgeable local guide choose the best lifts and BC ski areas each day is a big advantage.

The best months for this ‘Powder hunting’ programme are from early January to mid March.

Are you ready to explore and enjoy some great freeride skiing in the amazing varied terrains that Niseko has to offer? Please contact me, I’ll be glad to provide you an unforgettable adventure and many powder snow memories!

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!
