Central Hokkaido Tour
BY FAR OUR MOST POPULAR GUIDED SKI & SNOWBOARD JAPAN TOUR
Central Hokkaido is what skiing and riding in Japan is really all about – untracked powder, no crowds and a true cultural experience.
We’ve been running this tour for 14 years now and each year it gets better with new terrain to explore. You’ll get to ski/snowboard the in-bounds powder and backcountry of Furano, Asahidake, Kamui, Tomamu, Sahoro and Pippu! All of these resorts have different qualities, terrain and weather patterns, and with a flexible itinerary you’ll experience the best conditions possible.
80% of the time we are off-piste in the lift accessed backcountry of each resort. the other 20% is to get to and from the lifts to the powder
Like all our tours you’ll ride in our comfy 4WD vans to whichever resort is best on any given day. Our guides work with you and the weather to make sure you have the best time possible.
As this tour is fully hosted we’ll take you to some of Furano’s great restaurants and bars where you can enjoy the delicious local cuisine and Japanese hospitality.
Don’t just book a run of the mill ski package, book a guided ski/snowboard tour with us and have the best experience possible.
Are you looking for a tour that includes lift-accessed touring, where you’ll use skins or split-boards to go deeper into the backcountry? If so, check out our popular Powder Belt Backcountry Tour.
