Hokkaido is not only blessed with awesome snow but a tonne of great ski areas to help you access it. Each resort offers something unique but with Hokkaido`s variable weather and distinct micro-climates, the biggest challenge is knowing where to go on any given day. That`s why our guides are up early every morning discussing weather conditions, assessing snow stability and figuring out where we can find the best, deepest and most untracked snow for you and your crew.
Your guide will pick you up from your accommodation at 8am (sometimes earlier depending on destination), advise the plan 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 we typically decide the destination on the day of your trip. Please let us know if there is somewhere in particular you want to visit.

You and your guide will make the final call based on snow conditions and your skiing interests. Price remains the same regardless of our destination ensuring the decision is based purely on having the best time and finding the deepest snow!
All guests are required to have an avalanche safety kit (backpack, shovel, transceiver, probe) on all guided trips. If you do not have your own, discounted rentals are available to all guests on our guided trips @1000Yen/set/day.
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. Additional gear info will be provided after booking.
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`re covered with our powder guarantee.
In order to simplify things on the day of your trip, we will typically pre-charge for lift tickets at the time of booking. This accelerates the process when we arrive at each ski area and takes advantage of the discounts we have arranged at most ski areas. We charge 8000Yen in advance for lift tickets and this amount will be refunded if they are not used or if you have access to a better discount.
