Hokkaido Powder Guides offer private small group backcountry ski guiding and avalanche course instruction in Hokkaido, Japan.
Hokkaido Powder Guides are the specialists for ski guided trips in Japan combining culture and adventure with Japan’s fabled deep powder.
Japan is ideally located to catch the cold moisture laden air originating from Siberia which unloads meters of some of the most dependable powder in the world. A trip to Japan is a unique opportunity to ski live volcanoes, bathe in thermal hot springs and savor delicious Japanese cuisine.
Trips are focused on guided resort off-piste, backcountry trips and avalanche course instruction. Click on our Lodges page for private guiding and accommodation packages.
We hope that you can join us on an unforgettable ski/riding journey.
