Enjoy the fresh and deep snow in Niseko on this full-day skiing program!

Located in Hokkaido, the village of Niseko is one of the best and most popular spots to enjoy off-piste skiing in Japan. It has several options available for participants with an intermediate to advanced level of experience.

Our destination will be chosen according to the weather and snow activity as well as your skiing level. Keep in mind that we can also organize a program in other areas in Hokkaido.

When there is more than one person, the whole group adapts to the lowest level or we can ski together in the morning and split up after lunch break.

We will start by ascending with a chairlift in the resort and enjoy sliding out of the gates, in the non patrolled area, during the morning and the afternoon. At the end of the day, we will drive you back to your accommodation.

Apart from skiing in the fantastic terrain of Niseko, this program is a great introduction to off-piste skiing in Japan. So, if you are getting started with this activity, you can’t miss this opportunity.

Although no touring experience is required for this trip, take into account that some routes may demand a short hike (about 15 minutes).

As for the equipment, don’t forget to bring your AVI gear (beacon shovel and probe). If you don’t have one, you can rent it in Niseko.

So, does this off-piste skiing trip sound like something for you? Get in touch with me by sending your request to book this program. We can adapt it to suit your preferences!

About the guide

Ski Instructor

From a very young age I’ve had a strong connection with the mountains and nature. Although I grew up in the city, I used to travel to the countryside quite a lot. At the beginning, I approached the mountains in the summer time, hiking, trekking, sleeping in mountain huts, climbing and doing that kind of things. Later on, I started skiing and I just couldn't stopped: I became addicted to the snow!!

Back-country skiing started to grow on me when I was working in the Lake Tahoe ski area. I can still remember the feeling of the first few times I went to the backcountry on my skis, going up and down several peaks with no people around me except for my group of friends and away from the crowds of the resorts. It was fantastic!

After several year of backcountry skiing in Argentina (near Bariloche) and USA (Lake Tahoe), I made it to Niseko, Japan. I have been skiing, teaching, and guiding in Japan for the past 4 years. The snow here is unbelievable and the skiable terrain is huge and diverse. In the Niseko area you can find everything, from easy off-piste near the resort to several days backcountry skiing out there and lots of volcano skiing. Come on, just contact me and let’s go skiing!!

What people are saying about this trip



Amazing day with Simon! Above all expectations



Our guide was Tomas Baez. He was absolutely fantastic. I have skied with many guides and Tomas is top 1%. He was creative in organizing our 7 ski days and we felt that we got to see a wide array of ski experiences in Hokkaido. We mixed side country with back country and had a fabulous time! I highly recommend Tomas as a ski guide.



We actually had Tomas, rather than Nicolas and he was great. It was a busy day but tomas found us nice snow and showed us around the mountain. We used the “local” knowledge to help us find lots of nice glade and bowl skiing for the rest of the week.



We had a great day of skiing with our guide Ivan. He was knowledgeable, kind and a great skier that knew where all the best snow was located for our ability. My boys loved him. Thank you for a great day in Niseko!



We enjoyed our day skiing with Simon. He is excellent guide, we found plenty of powder and had a lot of fun. Thank you, Simon!
