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!

If you are looking for a more adventurous ski trip, you can take a look at this 1-day backcountry ski trip in Niseko.

Ski Guide

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!

We had an excellent trip, however, Expolre share said we would have Jun as our local guide - this was switched last minute from Jun to Tim - Tim was excellent (the guide rating of 5 is for Tim, not for Jun), but we had no information about Tim's background or credentials to assess before the trip. In the future, explore share should let us know in advance if there is a guide change and provide background and credentials.

The "Guided powder ski tour" was amazing, also thanks to your brilliant and professional guide Gunther Winkel also a big thanks to Jun Horie for the skitouring equipment. On behalf Daniel and myself we want to thank you for a very professional guided powder ski tour, showing us Niseko in the best way of ski touring.

I skied with Kehoe Seki, who took my up Mt Iwaonupuri. He is among the most knowledgeable, helpful and friendly guides I've skied with. I highly recommend.
