Backcountry Guides

Are you looking for a truly authentic Japan snow experience? If so Hakuba, situated deep in the foothills of Nagano’s Northern Japanese Alps, is the place to start. With mountain peaks that rise nearly 3000m towering over the valley, Hakuba is a playground for extreme skiing and adventure that will blow your mind with its incredible terrain and some of the best powder skiing Japan has to offer. Check out our Hakuba Backcountry Tours and Off-Piste Tours to get a taste of what is on offer. 

The Northern Japanese Alps, with their marked resemblance to The Alps of Europe, host an abundance of things to do and see. If powder skiing the incredible Hakuba snow is not your thing, join one of our Snowshoe Tours or Cross Country Ski Tours where you will learn about the history and spiritual culture of these majestic mountains from our local guides. We also run Avalanche Safety Training Courses. The courses are conducted by qualified and experienced instructors with years of experience guiding and instructing right here in the Hakuba Valley.
