Hokkaido is not only blessed with awesome snow but a tonne of great ski areas with lifts to help you access it. Each resort offers something unique and incredible skiing on the right day but with Hokkaido`s variable weather and distinct micro-climates, the challenge knowing where to go on any given day. That`s why our guides are up early morning discussing weather conditions, assessing snow stability and figuring out where we can find the best, deepest and most untracked snow. Your guide will pick you up from your accommodation around 8am (sometimes earlier depending on destination), advise their top pick for the day and after a discussion of your interests take you for an epic day of skiing / riding at the most suitable location.

We leave our day trips as open and flexible as possible to accommodate snow conditions and your input so that most decisions can be made on the day of the trip.

Locations

We offer lift assisted day trips for guests staying Niseko region  with door to door pick ups offered from all 5 Niseko base areas. We are sometimes able to arrange day trips for guests staying in other areas and/or can meet you for multiple days. Ski areas within reach of Niseko include Niseko, Moiwa, Rusutsu, Kiroro along with a few smaller areas that we`d like to keep under wraps.

Gear

All guests are required to have an avalanche safety kit (backpack, shovel, transceiver, probe) on all guided trips. Please let us know if you do not have your own and we will provide a kit at no extra charge.

Please plan for cold weather conditions on all days as the weather can change quickly in the mountains. Lots of layers, spare goggles and gloves are recommended.

Uphill Travel

These trips are designed to be lift assisted with minimal uphill travel (usually max 20 minute bootpacks) and we can typically deliver high quality trips with great snow. That said, on some days the only way to get good turns is to earn it. Please let us know at the time of booking that you would be willing to go ski touring if conditions dictate. Conversely if you have no interest in walking up hills regardless of conditions then we would like to know that too! Either way you are covered with our powder guarantee.
