HAKUBA, JAPAN

Have you ever seen as much snow fall out of the sky that you couldn’t look through it anymore and that you’d be wondering if it would ever stop from falling? No? We will show you this in Japan!

After flying into Tokyo we will drive you out to the Japanese Alps. Nothing is less true than that Japan is not steep enough. Hakuba on the main island has mind blowing alpine and we’re gonna get you in there. In a week long mix between off piste riding and back country adventures, it’ll blow your mind!

The valley of Hakuba exists out of 9 ski resorts, with a lot of unexplored unridden off-piste tracks with spacious tree lines and magical views on the ocean. Only a lift ride away and no hiking involved we will get you into steep and deep Japow!

When we’ve tracked out most of the goods or the snow has stopped from falling we will get you out on touring ski’s or splitboards to explorer the mountains surrounding the ski resorts. With so many mountains there are endless options, from mellow open powder fields to steep alpine chutes, everything is possible.

Be prepared for a week of snorkeling through the powder, local authentic restaurants, guesthouses and hot springs. Because Japan also know’s whats good after ski hours!
