Follow me on a spectacular trip tailored just for you and your group on a backcountry skiing adventure in the impressive Hokkaido, Japan.

Hokkaido offers incredible areas full of perfect powder snow to practice skiing and snowboarding. You have probably heard about Niseko, but there’s also Shiretoko, Yuubari, Horokanai, Northern Hokkaido, and others.

Niseko is Japan’s most popular skiing area with stunning powder snow during the winter and spring months. It boasts spectacular views, restaurants, shopping spots and nightlife. It is also very accessible to English speakers.

The Shiretoko Peninsula is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and includes Mt. Rausu (1,661 m). You’ll get breathtaking views of the Sea of Okhotsk. Yuubari or Mount Racey Ski Resort is a small area but mostly uncrowded. Perfect for beginners and intermediate skiers. The Horotachi ski resort in Horokanai is another small resort ideal for adrenaline seekers. I’ll make sure to take you to the place with the best snow at the time of your trip.

So send your request now and discover why Hokkaido is such a popular spot for backcountry ski enthusiasts!

I also offer other activities in the area such as an ice climbing day trip from Sapporo and a 2-day alpine climbing experience in Tokachidake. Check them out and enjoy a fantastic adventure in Japan.
