HOKKAIDO BACKCOUNTRY TOUR 

9 NIGHTS / 8 DAYS GUIDING

Guided ski and snowboard tours in Japan is what we do best!

If you are travelling with 4 or more people, we can customise a private-guided tour like the examples above but just for your group!

If none of the above suits you or your travel dates, our Whiteroom Guides can be booked to create your own personalised guided ski tour. You can use our tours as a starting point then contact us for help making it an unforgettable guided Japan ski holiday.

Why do a group Tour?

  • Check out the best local spots (from a locals perspective)
  • Chase the best weather conditions and ski multiple resorts
  • Meet new people, and ski/ride with a bunch of like-minded people (at a similar ability level)
  • Minimise the hassle and stress in organising your own trip (we do that for you!)
  • Learn how to master powder skiing in a fun supportive environment.

All the above tours are designed so that as you progress in ability there is always a tour for you. Choose from a variety of destinations and if one is not enough, combine two tours and get AU$127 off each tour!

Don’t forget Japan is a cultural wonderland and if you have time we highly recommend stopping in Tokyo before or after your Japan powder tour. Kyoto is also a must if you have more time to spend, ask your consultant for their recommendations.

Our Guides

We take two things very seriously – safety on the mountain, and getting the most from each day. With qualified and experienced guides from all corners of the globe, we’ll show you some amazing places and get you deep into that famous Japanese powder.
