Experience one of the best powder skiing in the world. This tour from Niseko to Asahidake takes place in Hokkaido, Japan.
It is a unique opportunity for you to experience something different. In terms of skiing (ski touring and freeride skiing) but also in terms of cultural learnings.
Different options are possible in Hokkaido. I usually try to bring my clients where the snow is the best, based on what they like to do. Some prefer going down a lot, others like to have a mix between up- and downhill skiing.
We move between Niseko, Furano and Asahidake, from the deepest to the finest powder skiing area.
One of my objectives during this trip is also to show you the Japanese culture and traditions. We stay in Japanese Ryokan with tatami-matted rooms, communal baths, and other public areas where you may wear yukata. We will enjoy good food and relax in the onsen (hot springs) after good days of skiing.
Skiing in Hokkaido is particularly well known for the cold and dry powder. It usually snows here between 10 and 18 meters every year. This is due to the cold winds coming from Siberia. They pass above the Japanese sea and then unload huge amounts of snow on the island.
Being local, I know very well the right spots where the snow is the best and where few people go.
You’ll find below a typical program I propose.It can of course be adapted based on your wishes, the weather / snow conditions and the time you have here in Japan. I think it’s also a good opportunity for you to visit Tokyo and maybe some other cities, in Honshu or Hokkaido while you are here.
Beware of non-certified mountain guides. Most of the guides in Niseko don’t have certification! You must have a UIAGM/IFMGA or JMGA certified guide, as for example myself or my colleague Jun.
Get in touch with me if you want to experience such a great skiing adventure.
