Hokkaido tour with 3 days of private cat skiing
February 4th-14th 2023
** Trip dependent on covid restrictions being lifted as expected by end of September 22**
Go Deep in Japan’s legendary powder where it snows hard nearly every day! You will need your fattest skis and possibly some breathing apparatus to navigate the deepest, coldest snow on earth. Japan offers far more than the ability to ski incredible powder from dawn till after dusk. It offers a cultural and cuisine experience that will leave memories for the rest of your life.
The daily snowfall can often be deeper than you have ever seen and you get to ski deep lines through beautiful rolling hills and open trees. Then relax for the evening in a cultural and gastronomical conglomeration of outstanding tastes and styles.
This incredible trip can start with you flying in to Sapporo CTS airport hotel on the afternoon preceding the camp start in February then heading to Rusutsu where we will be based for 2 days guided skiing exploring this fun mountain with great tree and open powder fields. This is our warm up before heading in to three days of cat skiing.
We will head 2 hours SW from Niseko to Shimamaki on the Karibayama mountain range beside the Sea of Japan. Where we will spend 3 days cat skiing with Hokkaido Back Country Cats staying in a local mountain Onsen.
We will come out from there to the lights of Niseko before heading up to Kiroro to explore the feilds of central Hokkaido.
We have our final night celebrating the incredible cultural cuisine and ski experience with everyone before transport back to CTS airport with memories to last a life time.
If you need a shorter itinerary we can accommodate you in parts of our trip. and will price accordingly.
