Powder Belt Backcountry Tour

GUIDED & HOSTED SKI & SNOWBOARD TOUR
NEW FOR 2018-19, THIS TOUR WILL HAVE YOU EXPLORING CENTRAL HOKKAIDO’S ENDLESS BACKCOUNTRY USING THE LIFTS AND YOUR OWN TWO FEET!
Central Hokkaido has some of Japan’s most easily accessible backcountry. It’s the perfect place for those new to backcountry or those who have done it before, but don’t need to hike all day everyday. When you have touring gear a whole new world opens up, runs that weren’t possilble due to a massive boot pack hike out become an easy 15-20 min tour.
Using the lifts in Furano, Tomamu, Kamui, Asahidake and Sahoro we will head into the backcountry for endless fresh lines. There is also the option of full touring days in Tokachidake and other lesser known backcountry areas.
This 8 night tour will have you staying in the beautiful Rising Sun B&B in Kitanomine, Furano where your host Gonzo will look after your every need.
All this will be fully guided by two of our experienced guides and with a max of 10 people on the tour it’ll be just you and deep JAPOW!!
