The PowderHunter offers you direct access to our unrivalled experience and removes the need to decide months in advance where the best snow will be when you arrive here.
The island of Hokkaido is battered with relentless light, dry snow from December to March every year but the challenge is knowing where to go each day. Factors like variable weather, strong winds, poor visibility and distinct micro-climates mean that KNOWLEDGE IS POWDER! The PowderHunter offers you direct access to our unrivalled experience and removes the need to decide months in advance where the best snow will be when you arrive here. If the weather and snow are stable, our first option is to get into the Niseko Back Bowls, but if the winds are strong we’ll head to Rusutsu, Kiroro or Moiwa for incredible gladed powder skiing; if it’s not snowing in the Niseko area and we need to take advantage of another weather pattern we’ll go a little further afield and over a mountain pass to Sapporo Kokusai. Other options include some of our secret lift accessed and or backcountry stashes at places we can`t name on the website. Our goal is heli-ski powder without the heli… or associated price tag. See below for descriptions for most of the areas that we may visit on your powderhunter day trip.
