Yuki Yama Backcountry Tour
FULLY GUIDED & HOSTED BACKCOUNTRY TOUR
We’ve brought back this popular tour for 2024 and stepped it up a notch! You’ll be based in world-famous Niseko, venturing away from the crowds and into the less-visited backcountry areas in the region.
Yuki Yama – Japanese for snowy mountain… we think that’s a fairly accurate name for this peak bagging tour!
This tour includes Weston and Moment Ski/Splitboard Backcountry Demo Rental (skis/board/poles/skins) for all 6 days on snow. Just bring your own boots and we’ve got you covered on the rest!
Based over 7 nights staying a short walk from Hirafu Village at Always Niseko, we’ll be chasing the bountiful storms rolling in from Siberia. Each day will be spent touring with or without using the lifts to explore the best of these amazing resorts: Niseko, Rusutsu, Kiroro, Moiwa or Kokusai – so you can chase the best of what Japan has to offer.
We’ll explore some great zones including the Goshiki Onsen area, Yoichi-dake behind Kiroro, as well as climbing iconic peaks like Mt Yotei and it’s sister mountain Shirebetsu-dake when the weather is favourable.
If you have experience ski touring or splitboarding in the backcountry this tour will be the perfect way to see the best of the snowiest region of Hokkaido. The Niseko region is ideally suited for keeping a flexible schedule, allowing us to keep your day mixed between touring and the lifts.

" Carter was particularly good at communicating about avalanche safety and helping us understand the decision-making process. He seemed really knowledgeable about places to ski and individual lines to run "
