Powder Belt Backcountry Tour
FULLY GUIDED & HOSTED LIFT ACCESSED BACKCOUNTRY TOUR
Central Hokkaido has some of Japan’s most easily accessible backcountry. It’s the perfect place for those new to touring the backcountry or those who have done it before but don’t need 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 15-20 min tour.
Using the lifts in Furano, Tomamu, Kamui, Asahidake, Kurodake 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 12 people on the tour, it’ll be just you and deep JAPOW!!
