Splitboard Special Road Trip
Rode Hikkaido Resort and Sidecountry
The concept of the Road Trip is an old one but a good one. This Road Trip takes an experienced and dedicated splitboard guide and a group of splitboarders, and sets them loose in the amazing Central Hokkaido Snow. Our Splitboard Special Road Trip embraces the freedom to ride the very best on any given day. We tap into over 34 years of guiding in Hokkaido, as well as our network of local contacts to pick the very best locations each and every day. Transport is via private 4WD mini bus giving us complete autonomy.
On this ultimate Hokkaido snow journey our splitboard guides take you to central Hokkaido’s premier resorts, inlcuding Furano, Kamui, Tomamu & Asahi Dake with options to ride and explore other less visited and/or backcountry destinations such as the Tokachi Mountains. For more information on these areas, visit our Locations page.
Tip # 1: We recommend splitboards with skinsfor this tour. This way you can use the same kit for either on or off piste skiing, and if you are new to splitboarding and skins, you have the bonus of learning how to use this 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!
