Ever dreamed of exploring the famous forests of Japan while effortlessly floating through the deep powder as the snow laden trees rush past? If you have, then this is the trip for you.
There has always been a lot of snow in Japan but in recent years the word has gotten out and it is now a magnet for those in search of bottomless powder and never ending snowfalls. Cruising through the ghostly beech and birch forests with fluffy powder billowing over your head is one of the best feelings in the world but it's even better if there is no one else around. We'll be taking you to the secret powder stashes far from the crowds where all you need to worry about is trying to breathe as you surface from yet another deep turn. Along the way you will enjoy fascinating Japanese culture, delicious food, a mild climate, natural hot springs and wonderfully friendly people.
In Japan there is no organised rescue and there are many unqualified guides working around the various ski hills. Our guides are all qualified by the IFAGM or the ACMG (the international and Canadian associations of mountain guides) so you will always be in safe hands.

The trip is primarily focused on getting away from the crowds and that means getting the skins on your skis and ski touring. If conditions warrant we may use the ski lifts on certain days in order to access some of the terrain beyond the resort boundaries.
We find Niseko to be the ideal base as there are plenty of varied options nearby including Chisenupuri, Shiribetsu-dake, Mt. Yotei, Rusutsu and Annupuri.
If you are looking for blue skies and lots of sunshine Japan is not the place for you. During the winter months it snows and it snows a lot. But if the sun does happen to make a rare appearance we will attempt to climb and ski Mt. Yotei volcano (seen on the left).
At the end of every ski day you will have the option to relax and soothe your muscles in one of the many Onzens (the traditional Japanese natural hot spring) surrounding the area of Niseko.
We only have a limited number of spots available for 2017 so please contact us as soon as possible if you are interested.
