8 DAYS I 6 DAYS RIDING
Escape the crowds and join us in Niseko during March. You’ll get to spend a week exploring the linked resorts of Niseko United, plus the nearby resort of Rusutsu. You’ll get to ride everyday with a backcountry guide who will lead the charge and help you up-skill. Don’t miss your chance to check out some of the best freeriding in Japan.
We keep the itinerary flexible so your guide can hunt down the best conditions all day, every day. Each day your guide will assess the conditions and decide which is the best place to ride based on weather and snowfall. Each day we’ll load up the van’s and drive to our chosen area. This flexibility ensures that we will find you the best snow and conditions all day, every day!
RIDE THE BEST RESORTS IN HOKKAIDO
We keep the itinerary flexible so you can ride at the best resort on the day. Our base for this tour is Niseko, which gives us easy access to Hanazono, Hirafu, Niseko Village, Annupuri, Rusutsu and Moiwa.
When we are on mountain, we keep our group size to a maximum of 6 people for a more personal experience between our guests and guides. This ensures you get the most out of your time with us, and keeping the groups small means less time waiting and more time riding powder!
SNOW & CONDITIONS
The ski season in Niseko stretches over 5 months from late November to early May. There is still a high chance of scoring fresh powder snow right through to the end of March. Temperatures range from -2°c to -10°c. It’s actually the locals favourite time of year, as the the high season crowds disappear, so there’s little competition for fresh snow after a storm. With the weather more settled, there is less chance of chairlift closures, and more opportunity to safely access the backcountry. Even if we don’t get fresh snow overnight, the cold temperatures and our local knowledge will ensure you’ll be able to ride quality snow, days after a storm.
LUXURY LODGE ACCOMMODATION
We make sure all our guests stay in quality accommodation that’s in the best location. Throughout the tour you’ll stay at our private luxury lodge, located in Hirafu. Our lodge has great communal spaces so you can relax after a long day on the mountain. Our comfortable twin share rooms are equipped with 2 single beds and offer glimpses of Mt Yotei that will have you feeling zen in no time. Each room has a great heating, TV, and free WiFi.
UNLIMITED ACCESS TO POWDER BOARDS
Throughout the tour you’ve got unlimited access to our fleet of powder boards from Nitro Snowboards. You’ll get to ride the latest powder shapes from the Nitro 2018/19 range.
