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 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.
All of our guided trips include door to door transport.
Pickup: 8am from your accommodation in Niseko
Return: ~4-6pm depending destination (Earlier returns available on request)
Niseko is well positioned with a number of great ski areas within striking distance on any given day. In addition to the 4 resorts that make up the Niseko United area, we also have access to Rusutsu, Kiroro, Moiwa and several other lesser known areas.
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, one will be provided to you. Safety kit rental rental fee on guided trips is 1000Yen/kit.
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 are covered with our powder guarantee.
