Japan Powder Skiing Safari 2020

Every year we go on safari – ski safari! In January 2020 we are chasing more of the famous powder skiing in the mystical forests of Japan. We will be returning to Hakuba, which has been a favourite destination for all the groups I have skied there with.


Guided Powder Skiing in Japan

Deep, cold powder; supernatural forests; high ridges and summits. Hakuba has some of the finest powder skiing in the world, all with easy access. The skiing is outstanding, and it is all wrapped up in a unique cultural experience.

The defining feature of Japanese skiing is the forest and it is nothing like you have skied before. The open deciduous trees are truly beautiful to float through. There is also open alpine terrain at higher elevations that give great runs.

There is a skier in there...

Heading to the lifts for another day of skiing!

In addition to guiding services, our price includes accommodation, breakfast, dinner, vehicle transport and lift tickets that get us into the backcountry quickly. All you need to do is show up in Hakuba and we take care of the rest!

I have never seen it snow anywhere like I have seen in Japan. If the weather systems set up right we can get 15-50 cm of cold blower pow every day.

The nitty gritty


You need to have done some previous ski touring and be able to ski powder in the trees. If you have backcountry ski experience and are comfortable with a black diamond run at a ski hill then you will enjoy this trip!
