Please join me for a great freeride and ski touring tour in Honshu!

During this 8-day trip, I’ll take you to the best ski areas of the island: Ninakami, Katashina, Hakuba (Nagano) and Nozawa.

Some of them are quite touristic, some others are more out of the beaten tracks. This makes a good mix for an unforgettable ski experience, which is just 2 hours away from Tokyo!

You can find a standard program below. Of course I can adapt the itinerary according to your wishes: skiing up or down hill, visiting touristic or remote places. I’ll also consider the snow conditions and the time you have here in Japan for skiing.

Please contact me if you want to discuss about a ski program in Honshu. I come from this area so I will be happy to guide you there and let you enjoy the best part of it.
