New Powder Road Trip

Ski Hokkaido Resort and Sidecountry

The concept of the Road Trip is an old one but a good one. Our New Powder Road Trip embraces the freedom to ski the very best on any given day. We tap into over 34 years of skiing and guiding in Hokkaido, as well as our network of local contacts to pick the very best skiing each and every day. Transport is via private 4WD mini bus giving us complete autonomy.

On this ultimate Hokkaido ski journey our guides take you to central Hokkaido’s premier resorts, inlcuding Furano, Kamui, Tomamu & Asahi Dake with options to ski and explore other less visited and/or backcountry destinations such as the Tokachi Mountains. For more information  on these areas, visit our Locations page. 

Had an absolutely fantastic time on the recent powder trip. Could not have asked for more from Felix as our trusty and trusted guide. He did an awesome job with all of us, every day from start to finish.

Tour Tips

Tip # 1: We recommend modern Alpine Touring (AT) gear for this tour. This way you can use the same kit for either on or off piste skiing, and if you are new to AT skis and bindings, you have the bonus of learning how to use AT skis and associated equipment. (skins, beacon, etc).

Tip # 2: Book flights that will arrive in Chitose or Asahikawa airport by about midday on day one of your tour. For your departure day, dont book a departure flight any earlier than about 1:00 pm.

Please contact us to discuss a tailored backcountry adventure for you or your group. We are now taking bookings for the 2019-2020 season!
