Description

On this 2 day group trip, you will have the chance to enjoy a day of backcountry skiing in Niseko and a day of backcountry skiing down Mount Yotei (1,898m). Each one of these days offers a completely unique experience. Also, you do not even have to enjoy the days back to back either. Instead, you can space them out if you want.

Niseko is a beautiful ski resort area on the island of Hokkaido. The powder, slopes and overall skiing experience is amazing. And on the backcountry day trip, you will get to explore the area, as we will forego the use of lifts. Instead, we will hike our way to the top of the descents, which take place on the peaks in the area. Those peaks include Mount chise, Mount Iwao, and Mount Iwao.

For the skiing down Mount Yotei, the descent is a thrilling, but challenging adventure. There is all kinds of different terrain on this trip, as you will be skiing through trees as well as in the open, often in deep powder, with 30° slopes. As a result, participants on this trip should be experienced off-piste skiers, and should also be physically fit.

This is a great trip because it’s really two trips in one. For people looking to ski just outside of the resorts, enjoying long descents of up to 300 metres, as well as hikes through beautiful landscape, Niseko has you covered. And for people who want the difficult, but rewarding experience of skiing down one of the most beautiful mountains in the country, the Mount Yotei day trip has you covered as well.

So if you are looking for a fun filled 2 day skiing experience, send me a request, join a group, and have a great time.

Accommodation

There are several hotels in the Niseko area.
