Not specified

1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar


I invite you to a backcountry skiing trip starting in Sapporo, the capital of Hokkaido. Enjoy the best powder snow as well as the exciting city nightlife of this great destination. You can also relax in an onsen after an intense journey!

Only 2 hours away from Sapporo, there are a lot of accessible ski areas, like Niseko, Kiroro, Sapporo International Ski Resort and Kamui Links. All of them have great powder snow!

For this 1-day trip we’ll choose the best area according to the snow and weather conditions of the previous day.

Besides, you can choose between a whole journey of backcountry skiing (full hike up the mountains) or combine it with a lift access for some off piste skiing.

We can also arrange multi day trips to other destinations like Mount Asahidake (2,291 m), the highest mountain in Hokkaido. Fine and light powder snow makes this place a paradise for skiers. We can go up by gondola to Sugatami Station (1,600 m) and easily access the alpine terrains to ski.

After an overload of fun in the snow, we will have the chance to take a dip in a hot spring (onsen). Then, we can go out for the evening in Sapporo.

Please contact me if you are interested in this activity. It will be great to go searching for untracked lines in the place with the world’s best powder snow!
