Private and Group

1/2 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar




It’s a honor for me to invite you to Niseko, an amazing ski area in the heart of Hokkaido. I’ll guide you through the best backcountry lines using the chair lift system of Moiwa Ski Area.

The ski area is quite steep and receives an incredible amount of powder every season, so you will definitely have a blast. Take into account, however, that this program is for advanced skiers or snowboarders who can ride in particularly tight spacing between trees and traverse terrain up and down.

My backcountry skiing program is a less demanding option, considering I´m able to choose the terrain that is best adapted to your skills.

In Moiwa Ski Area, however, all the sidecountry terrain is for very advanced skiers. Take into account as well that this program is highly dependent on weather and snow conditions and I will only be able to confirm 100% that we will be able to go for it on the evening before the start of the trip.

The Guide Fee below is for Group Tours. Please see Extra Information for Guide Fee for Private Tours.

In case I am unavailable to guide, my colleagues with Niseko Winter Guide qualification and a member of Japanese Red Cross Society Emergency Personnel in my guide company will be able to guide you.

So, if you want to know more about next departures or booking process complete the form now and get in touch with me. I promise you that you’ll experience Niseko fully!
