FREERIDE JAPAN, HOKKAIDO ISLAND

0 Comments

From January 16 to Friday 24th 2021

From 2900 euros /person (minimum 6 participants)

The best POWDER snow of our plane. Boarding or skiing often on shallow slopes, with generally 700 to 900 meters vertical drop skiing, & maybe the best powder of our planet!!

Is the best powder snow of our planet found in Japan, on Hokkaido northern island?

In Japan, the practice of freeride, on skis and snowboarding, is done in an incredibly light powder snow, mostly in forests on shallow slopes from the ski-lifts. The snowboard and ski runs offer generally 700 to 900 m vertical drop. If we want to find steep runs we have to go ski-touring, practicing backcountry skiing or boarding, ascending with skins on the slopes of volcanoes. Japan is known for its famous Fuji Yama volcanoe, but has also many other snowy volcanoes (that look like arising from lakes) on which bowls and slopes an exceptional off-piste skiing awaits us. Dreams of powder skiing!!

After skiing or snowboarding we will enjoy jumping in the thermal natural hot water pools called Oneng, and appreciate the Japanese food and traditional sushis….
