Resort, Sidecountry and Backcountry
Making use of the exclusive Alpine Backcountry Lodge at Tomamu, this tour spends 7 days/6 nights in the Tomamu area.
We spend a day or two at the fantastic Tomamu Resort and sidecountry areas if the powder is right. If the resort is tracked out, we explore some of the incredible backcountry area in the surrounding ranges.
Also featured is the recently opened “Powder Bowl” area of the Sahoro Resort.
Alpine Backcountry Lodge is owned and managed by Apline Backcountry Guides, and has a cosy Ski Lodge ambience, wood heater and comfortable accommodation.
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 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!
