GUIDED DAY TOUR

Tour operating dates 20th Dec to 15th March.
This is the perfect plan for private groups seeking ski and snowboard guiding services for one or more days. The day will commence with an early morning hotel pickup, typically between 7:30 to 8:00 am, via a Hiace van, and proceed towards the skiing location. We will ski from opening till 12:30 pm, break for lunch, and return to skiing till 3:30 pm. After a long day of skiing, we will take you to the nearest favourite Onsen to unwind till 5:00 pm. The day will conclude with a drop-off at your hotel between 5:00 - 6:00 pm. Please note that the Onsen is only included for bookings with two or more days.

Type of terrain and conditions

  • Our primary focus will be to spend 90% of the day off-piste exploring the side and backcountry of Furano and other ski resorts (Asahidake, Kamui, Tomamu, Pippu, Sahoro). Other backcountry touring requests for the Tokachidake, Furanodake, and Kurodake areas are available upon request.

  • You can expect light dry, deep snow, perfect for riding powder. Temps will be cold, ranging from -10 to -30°C / 14 to -22°F.  The terrain is a mix of open spaces, and tight tree runs, steep and mellow terrain with short traverses at the end of some runs to get back to the resorts. Hokkaido winter is typically snowy and overcast, causing low visibility (bring those high-vis lenses!). Conditions can vary depending on location and altitude so bring plenty of layers to stay warm and be protected from the elements. 


Skill requirements

  • The group must be advanced or higher skill level and prior experience skiing or snowboarding in powder. It's important that you feel confident on black diamond runs, routinely venture off-piste at resorts or in the backcountry, can navigate any alpine terrain with ease, and maintain a steady rhythm. Nonetheless, since these tours are private, we can adjust the level of difficulty of the terrain to match your skill level. 

Avalanche Safety Equipment

  • For all guided tours, it is mandatory to have avalanche safety equipment including backpack, beacon, probe, and shovel. Please inform me if you don't have this equipment and rentals will be arranged. 

Important points to consider

  • Please note that weather conditions will be an essential factor when deciding which ski resort or location to visit. This will ensure you can enjoy the best snow conditions while prioritizing safety.
