Japan Ski Tours. Guided Backcountry Skiing & Snowboarding.
Small group guided snowboard and ski tours to Japan designed around the advanced skier and rider with a strong focus on powder and local culture. When we say small group, we mean it. Our multi-day guided tour itineraries feature 2 certified guides and a maximum of only 8 guests.
Explore the best powder stashes at the Japanese ski resorts before pushing out beyond the resort boundaries, deeper into the Japan backcountry. We keep it completely flexible to chase the best snow conditions in the area utilizing a mix of resort ski lifts, backcountry touring and our private 4×4 van. Return home each evening to our cozy onsen style hotels. Dinners are fully hosted by your guides.

Home to quite possibly the driest powder on the planet. Hokkaido’s light, dry, consistent snowfall is what has put snowboarding and skiing in Japan on the map for most international powder hounds. The northern island is something special.
