We are proud to offer a dedicated backcountry section at both Rhythm Summit and Rhythm Hakuba, offering a large selection of the latest backcountry equipment.

Niseko and Hakuba offer some of the best backcountry skiing in the world, from wide open bowls to perfectly spaced trees, the area has been blessed with perfect deep powder terrain.
