Come and explore the vast Hakuba backcountry and some of the very best powder skiing in Japan.
The Japan Alps average 12+ meters of beautiful powder snow each year, and no other mountain range in Japan has comparable terrain with amazing powder! In Japan, or anywhere else in the world, it doesn’t get much better than this! Evergreen Backcountry Guides are certified avalanche professionals and seasoned backcountry guides.
For those who are just starting to explore the backcountry. An intermediate ski, snowboard, or telemark skill level and a solid fitness level are all that is necessary. Participants on our Usagi (Bunny) Tour should be able to competently ride powder and negotiate through gladed trees and open bowls. The Usagi BC Tour requires hiking up slopes and ridges using alpine touring bindings & skins for skiers and snowshoes or split-board with skins for snowboarders. There will be approximately 3 hours of hiking broken up in the day and approximately 500~700 vertical meters of skiing. This introductory level tour is a great way to get off-piste, access epic terrain and ride the fantastic backcountry Hakuba has to offer!
