Local Knowledge & Experienced Certified Guides
All of our lead guides are professionally qualified and a member of either the IFMGA (International Federation of Mountain Guides Association) or the NZMGA (New Zealand Mountain Guides Association). We also include a local Japanese guide on most of our trips. We see this combination of local knowledge and in-depth guiding experience as the best way to get the most out of a trip to Japan in a safe manner, whilst allowing you to engage in the local culture and enjoy skiing accessible only through inside-knowledge
Awesome Tree Skiing
Perfectly spaced trees of Silver Birch allow you to effortlessly float through powder snow and continue skiing during major snow storms. The tree skiing in Japan is rated as some of the best of its kind in the world.
Rich Culture & Deep Powder
Skiing in Japan is a truly unique experience with its traditional and spiritual culture combined with modern resorts and outstanding DEEP powder snow. Visit the local sushi-ya (sushi bars) while watching the "sushi samurai" in action and enjoy slices of freshly cut tuna and octopus accompanied by a glass of local nihonshu (rice wine). After skiing you can relax in one of the many onsens scattered accross the volcanically active islands of Japan.
Off The Beaten Track
Our focus is to escape the crowds and the busy commercial resorts and explore the hidden gems Japan has to offer, far off the beaten track. Whether skiing close to a resort or in the middle of nowhere, we seek out the best snow and the deep untouched powder stashes.
