Hokkaido Explorer Tour

FULLY GUIDED & HOSTED RESORT & BACKCOUNTRY POWDER TOUR

Designed for advanced to expert skiers and snowboarders who are keen to use the lifts to access the backcountry of all the best ski areas in Hokkaido. With only 1 rest day you will be on the move, following the storms on the hunt for powder – trust us it’s addictive stuff!

This is an advanced-expert guided tour where we use the lifts to access the backcountry of each resort in search of fresh & deep Hokkaido powder!

Two of our most experienced guides will be taking these tours and as the limit on this tour is 12 people so you’ll have plenty of fresh lines at each resort. Depending on the direction of the tour your first or last 6 nights will be based in Furano. From here you will be able to access the resorts and slack-country off Furano, Asahidake, Kamui, Tomamu, Sahoro, Pippu or on some tour dates Kurodake.

At night you’ll get to sample some of the great local food the area is famous for as well as stopping at some great onsens to soak weary bones at the end of each day.

From Furano we will head through Sapporo to Otaru, famed for being the snowiest place in Hokkaido where we’ll ski and ride Kokusai, Teine and Kiroro. Along the way we’ll have a cultural excursion in Sapporo, checking out Ramen alley, the Sapporo Beer Factory, crazy Japanese games arcades (virtual Mario Kart!), shopping and wandering the snowiest city in Japan.

Last or first stop on this powder road trip in Niseko! Many people give this place a bad rap but it is fun, like Whistler is fun, big mountains, loads or terrain and a cool aprés scene. With 12-20 meters of snow each season and some of the best guides in the business you’ll be taken to where the snow is best and the crowds are virtually non-existent.

On this tour you’ll get to experience the Hokkaido we love and the culture and mountains we’ve come to respect.

Are you looking for a tour that includes more lift-accessed touring, where you’ll use skins or split-boards to go deeper into the backcountry for those fresh lines? If so, check out our popular Powder Belt Backcountry Tour.
