Backcountry Powder Skiing
Backcountry powder skiing tours are a great idea for all you adrenaline junkies that want to make the most of the waist-deep power Japan is famous for.
If you want to get away from the crowds and explore the great side and backcountry Myoko has to offer then we recommend local tour and guiding operators Japan Snowsports and Dancing Snow. If powder skiing and boarding are what you’re here for then these guys are the people to talk to.
Both companies have great local knowledge and experience. So if you are an intermediate to advanced skier or border and want to earn your turns talk to these guys or discuss the best way to improve your off-piste and side-country riding and work your way up to this next level. If you are unsure what riding level you are check out the Riding Ability Guide on our lessons page.
For those that want to keep their adrenaline high with a snowmobile tour then our friends at Yukibancho have you covered. Tours are available for riders of all abilities and experience and they offer a unique opportunity to explore the Joetsu Myoko area via snowmobile. You will enjoy the stunning panoramic scenery of the Okazawa forest and Sea of Japan with the option for snowshoeing or Yukiita (powder surfing, literally, no bindings) also available.
