The highest mountain in the island of Hokkaido, Mt Yotei (1898m) has made a name for itself among Japanese ski tourers.

The descent is the longest on the island and a challenging one as well. You’ll enjoy the incredible views as an added bonus!

This beautiful mountain is also known as Ezo Fuji (Hokkaido’s Mount Fuji) and every year attracts many climbers. However, the ascent’s success rate is quite low.

About the Guide

 
 

Hello! I’m a qualified Austrian mountain ski guide, a ski instructor as well as a alpine and ski guide with the Japan Mountain Guide Association (JMGA). I’ve lived 7 years in Austria, mainly as a ski instructor. I then became a mountain ski patrol in Tateyama in Japan, a heli ski guide in New Zealand, a chief guide at Niseko Hanazono Powder Guides, an assistant director of Niseko International snow sports school, and ultimately have started ski guiding independently since 2013.

I value the fundamentals of skiing as sports; to enjoy the snow mountains in a stylish, free and safe manner, in both private and as work. The best outcome is when both the client and guide can have fun, and for this, I am quite particular about not only guiding but also in technical / skills aspects and selection of appropriate equipment. I am an alpine skier but also enjoy telemark skiing. In summer, I have enjoyed surfing for a long time. Whether it be on waves, on mountains or on asphalt, if there’s enough steepness then I love to ‘glide’, which is my motto.

Please join me in gliding my backyard - which is the front and backcountry of Niseko!
