Guided powder skiing tours with  Lifts & Backcountry

Guided Hokkaido ski tours -Lifts & Backcountry

Our aim is to find the best powder snow for you to enjoy. To do this, there are times when all we need to do is catch a lift, and use our intimate knowledge of the resorts to farm the lift accessed powder to the maximum. But when that is done, and the deep glades outside the resort are calling with  dry fresh powder, it is time to get the skins out and use a combination of lifts and skins to keep the powder skiing dream alive. 

Accordingly, our guides will look to take you off piste when that is the best option. For example, after a resort introduction with your guide, you can choose between continuing to ski the lifts, or you can join your guide and explore the superb nearby backcountry. We have a full range of backcountry equipment available at a 10% discount for this tour and our experienced and AIARE avalanche trained guides will help you safely ski the backcountry, as well as teaching you how to use the equipment.

Had an absolutely fantastic time on the recent powder trip. Could not have asked for more from Felix as our trusty and trusted guide. He did an awesome job with all of us, every day from start to finish.

New Powder Road Trip

The concept of the Road Trip is an old one but a good one. It embraces the freedom to ski the very best on any given day. We tap into over 34 years of skiing and guiding in Hokkaido, as well as our network of local contacts to pick the very best skiing each and every day. Transport is via private 4WD mini bus giving us complete autonomy.

On this ultimate Hokkaido ski journey our guides take you to central Hokkaido’s premier resorts, inlcuding Furano, Kamui, Tomamu & Asahi Dake with options to ski and explore other less visited and/or backcountry destinations such as the Tokachi Mountains. For more information  on these areas, visit our Locations page. 


Tour Tips

Tip # 1: We recommend modern Alpine Touring (AT) gear for this tour. This way you can use the same kit for either on or off piste skiing, and if you are new to AT skis and bindings, you have the bonus of learning how to use AT skis and associated equipment. (skins, beacon, etc).
Tip # 2: Book flights that will arrive in Chitose or Asahikawa airport by about midday on day one of your tour. For your departure day, dont book a departure flight any earlier than about 1:00 pm.
