Niseko, Mt. Yotei, 2 Day Private Backcountry Skiing

Niseko and mount yotei

Join a certified mountain guide for a great 2 day private backcountry skiing trip in Niseko and Mount Yotei, perfect for those looking for a challenge!

Not specified

2 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Dec




There are a lot of different ways you can enjoy the Niseko skiing area on the island of Hokkaido in Japan. On this 2 day trip, I want to guide you through the more challenging, backcountry skiing option, which forgoes the use of ski lifts in favour of hiking to the top of the chosen descents. While on the second day you will get to experience an even more challenging excursion, backcountry skiing down the beautiful Mount Yotei (1,898m).

The scenery you will get to admire throughout this adventure is spectacular, especially during the hikes. Whether its sunrise or sunset, the Niseko area, with Mount Yotei looming above, is mesmerising. And when blanketed with snow, it is even more impressive. However, the real highlight of this trip will be the skiing itself. There will be descents from several peaks, not just Mount Yotei, and each one is different. Thus providing you with several completely unique experiences. The powder of the slopes is deep and plentiful, and the private nature of the trip will allow you to enjoy the experience in a more intimate environment.

Each day of this trip will start at approximately 8:00 am and end at approximately between 3:00 pm. There is also an optional photo session included as well. Furthermore, unlike many trips of this nature, the 2 days of this adventure do not have to be enjoyed consecutively. Instead, you can space them out however you please.

Of all the trips offered in the Niseko area, I believe this one appeals most to people who are looking for a more challenging experience. So if you are an experienced off-piste skier, and are physically up to the task, then this is the trip for you. 

Send me a request if you would like to join me.

I also offer a similar 2 day private trip, but instead of backcountry skiing there is sidecountry skiing in Niseko, as you will be using the ski lifts.
