Highlights: Remote Locations Across Hokkaido / Backcountry Touring Focus

Join us for an epic backcountry ski adventure to untracked lines across the island of Hokkaido. Over the course of this trip, we`ll move locations regularly and stay in some of Hokkaido`s less travelled areas. Weather permitting, we`ll aim to head into the backcountry and put skins on for at least some portion of all days but we`ll still be positioned within reach of ski resorts in case conditions aren`t well suited to touring or we`re keen from some lift accessed skiing.  In general though accommodation locations have been selected for their proximity to awesome backcountry touring zones… and not listed below to help them remain off the beaten track.
