A certified mountain guide wants to take you on a private, 2 day sidecountry skiing adventure in Niseko with backcountry skiing down Mt. Yotei.
This is the perfect 2 day trip for people looking for a private, well organised adventure in a beautiful place. The place is a combination of Niseko, a famous, gorgeous ski resort area in the Japanese island of Hokkaido, and Mount Yotei (1,898m), a stunning volcano that appears like a king of the entire area. And the private nature of the trip allows you by yourself, or with a small group of people you know, to enjoy it with a professional guide.
On this trip you will get to enjoy a day of accessible sidecountry skiing at a resort area, and a day of difficult backcountry skiing down a mountain. Hence making this the kind of trip that can appeal to any type of skier.
Each day, which doesn’t have to be consecutively enjoyed, starts at around 8:00 am. At that time, I will pick you up from your hotel, and we will go to the our guide’s office. From there, the trip will begin.
In the case of Niseko, that means going to and using one of the many ski lifts in the area to reach whichever descents we previously agree upon. Throughout the day, you will have the chance to enjoy up to 10 descents!
In the case of Mount Yotei, we will make our way up the mountain before enjoying the challenging descent down. The slopes are deep, and the terrain is varied, and at time arduous. Thus making it perfect for experienced skiers, which you must be in order to participate in this trip.
So if you are looking for a thrilling, private adventure that combines the Niseko area with Mount Yotei, just send me a request. I would be happy to guide you.
There are several hotels in the Niseko area.
The tour may be cancelled based on weather and snow conditions. The final decision of location will be decided on the day as well, for the same reasons.
Participants should bring with them a probe, beacon, a proper backpack, ski poles and a shovel. If you do not have this equipment, it can be rented in Niseko.

Jun is a responsible and reliable guide. He is also knowledgeable on the local flora and fauna and managed to show us quite a few interesting alpine flowers, birds and animals. He is kind and helpful and converses well in English. I will not hesitate to recommend him to any anyone needing an English speaking guide in Japan.
Just back from Hakuba –Japan and I’m so pleased to confirm we got such a great experience with Iwao who has provided a service above all expectations. Indeed assisting a family confronted to a new environment requires a certain level of patience and attention and all the family appreciated his sense of responsibilities and seriousness which allowed us to really enjoy this region by experiencing touring, hicking and of course skiing in immaculate powder. Iwao was very discreet but always acted to ensure we could take the best of all Hakuba mountains could offer to us during these 5 days.This experience will for sure remain in all our minds for long and this will be mainly thanks to Iwao ! Best, Arnaud
We had a wonderfull ski touring trip with Iwao in Gunma. Iwao brought us in various beautifull landscapes to found very good spring snow. He is a very professional guide that can adapt to clients will and conditions! We had great time sharing our experiences about nature and mountains. The second day, we had a long tour with beautiful views on gunma\'s region and finissing along a river in an amazing forest. It was great fun to wait the last train in the midel of nowhere at sunset to come back to our village! Iwao has perfectly organised the trip bringing me to nice local onsen, restaurant and hôtel! Wonderfull trip to recommand!
