Our team members have been skiing/riding in Hokkaido for years and have unmatched experience finding the best lines, deepest snow and most unique terrain on the island.
As much as we love skiing powder, our first priority is safety and this starts with a professional snow safety program. Every morning we have a qualified avalanche forecaster up early reviewing previous day field observations, weather data and weather forecasts to create a detailed stability analysis for the day. We then meet as a team at 7am to review this information and make appropriate terrain choices for the day based both on the hazard and where we expect to find the best snow!
In addition to the high level of training and experience our guides have, our team approach to data gathering and safety sets Rising Sun apart as the most competent guiding operation in Japan.
