  • Take a private group ski tour on some of the best slopes Japan offers.

  • Capture the supreme beauty of the steep and wild mountains of Hakuba.

  • Benefit from having a full-certified accompanying you in the Japan Alps.


Surrounded by the Japan Alps on the main island of Honshu, the village of Hakuba is home to the biggest and steepest mountains in Japan.

Countless backcountry adventures begin from the village in the Hakuba Valley, which hosts 9 ski resorts and more than 135 lifts.

We’ll spring deeper into the white snowy wilderness that has excellent access to tree skiing terrain. While the valley receives an average snowfall of approximately 11 meters each year.

The village hosted the main venue for the 1998 Winter Olympics in alpine skiing, ski jumping and cross-country skiing, thanks to its excellent infrastructure and rich history of outdoor sports.

Although the mountains tend to be steep there are other routes that are gentler, ensuring that the immense Japanese backcountry is open to all levels of difficulty.

And when I say all levels, I also mean open to families looking to discover a winter wonderland together. So long as your kids are aged 12 years and above, and have skied before, we can customise the trip.

Discover anything from wide open skiing and steep chutes to thrilling ridgelines and tree skiing. There are also opportunities to have snowmobile access and even heliskiing.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the wild Japanese backcountry for a day of private group ski touring in Hakuba.


About the guide

guide profile img

I am a mountain guide from New Zealand and have been chasing winters between New Zealand and Japan for 15 years.

I have an intimate knowledge of the local mountains and there is a huge variety of terrain and routes to choose from each day.

I have also developed a close connection to the Japanese ski community, the local culture and the people that make Japan such a special place to visit. I hold the cultural aspect of our ski trips as a very important factor in tying together any trip.
