Central Hokkaido is known for its extremely light, dry, snow, remoteness, and excellent touring possibilities. While the volume of snow closer to the coast is a bit more, the quality of central Hokkaido snow is (astoundingly) even better. Join us on a small group Japow extension and take advantage of that long flight you took to arrive in Japan for another 5 days/5 nights of superb skiing, onsens, and food. IFMGA certified Ski Guide and Avalanche forecaster Victor McNeil, will be taking us on fantastic tours in the Daisetsuzan National Park (translates as “Mountains of big snow”). In good weather we can access the high alpine area with impressive bowls and steeps that lead into old growth forests. If the visibility is low we can do laps in the trees in the wonderfully light snow. There are no lifts here so all of our turns will be earned.
