Highlights

 
     
    Join me for an incredible 4-day ski touring trip to traverse the snowy mountains starting from Niseko, in Hokkaido, and enjoy the fine snow of this great Japanese region!

    Lying near Mount Yotei (an active volcano similar to Mount Fuji), 50 kilometers away from the city of Sapporo, Niseko is the most famous ski resort in Japan. Its abundant powder snow makes it a top winter destination among skiers from all over the world.

    In fact, it has slopes suitable for all levels: beginners, intermediates and advanced skiers. Its terrain also allows all kinds of sports, like ski touring, splitboarding and backcountry skiing.

    During this exciting 4-day trip I’ll take you to a trip that connects Annupuri Ski Resort in Niseko and Mount Raiden (1211 m) by the sea.

    You’ll also be able to enjoy taking a dip in a hot spring (Onsen) and relax after skiing. Furthermore, you’ll be having delicious local food for dinner every day. That way, you’ll be ready to ski the following day!

    Please contact me if you want to come with me for a ski touring trip in Hokkaido! Below, you can find an itinerary for further details.

    Amazing experience. Took 5hrs to summit. Cloudy and little wind made it easier. Skies opened up 100M from the top. We summited and then we skied fresh powder into the crater. Well worth it.

    We had an excellent time hiking up to the summit of Mt Kurodake. Jun gave us a good intro to the flora and fauna on the way up and regaled us with stories all the way up. He set a pace suitable for us and ensured our safety throughout. Jun comes highly recommended!
