Powder Belt Backcountry Tour

FULLY GUIDED & HOSTED LIFT ASSISTED BACKCOUNTRY TOURING

Central Hokkaido has some of Japan’s most easily accessible backcountry. It’s the perfect place for those relatively new to touring or those who have done it before but don’t wish to hike all day every day. When you have touring gear a whole new world opens up, runs that weren’t possible due to a massive boot pack hike out become an easy 30-40 min tour.

UPDATED FOR 2025: WE NOW HAVE A MAX OF 8 CLIENTS ON THIS TOUR TO MAXIMISE YOUR ON MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE

Using the lifts in Furano, Tomamu, Kamui, Asahidake and Sahoro to do the hard vertical work we will then tour off into the backcountry for endless fresh lines.  We will also head across the valley to the Daisetsu National Park and the famed Tokachidake. There we will hike 300-1000 vertical through magical Jezo spruce forests to the top of alpine bowls with views towards the smoking (dormant) volcanic crater.

This 9 night tour will have you staying in the beautiful Munin in Kitanomine, Furano where you can relax after each ski day in their lovely onsen.

All this will be fully guided by two of our experienced guides and with a max of 8 people on the tour, it’ll be just you and deep JAPOW!!
