One day backcountry tours







If you are looking to venture off on a backcountry tour of any level we can offer guiding for your private group.


Prior to getting into the backcountry, all guests are instructed in techniques for traveling in the backcountry. Current techniques for conducting avalanche beacon searches are demonstrated and practiced.


Our one day backcountry tour starts off from the following two locations. Each location has a number of route options that are tailored to suit your fitness level.








Just one hour from JR(Japan Rilway) Nagano station is the Hakuba area of Chubu Sangaku National park. Hakuba area is the one of the biggest ski resort in Japan. Its view of surrounding big mountains changes your image of skiing in Japan. Over 12 meters of dry powder fall on some of the biggest terrain in the country. 


When snowpack instabilities settle, and avalanche danger is low, there are many exciting options available for the adventurous. A wide swath of open alpine terrain opens up above Hoppe ski resort. An hour hiking takes you to open bowls of Happo, the north-facing slopes along the  ridge to Mt. Karamatsu.






Myoko offers some of the best tree skiing in Nagano.

They have a wide supply of low hazard terrain for skiing when avalanche danger is high. 

Myoko Kogen is also great for those looking for an authentic Japanese experience. Particularly rich in history, traditional Japanese culture, and the area has lots of pure onsen hot springs. 

If you are looking for nightclubs and parties Myoko will not be the place. Instead, it’s all about the skiing in Myoko.
