Backcountry touring

If you’re heading to Niseko this spring, there is no better way to enjoy the clear skies and stable weather than to get out into the backcountry, touring. This region has a stunning landscape that for most of the winter season is hidden under a sea of clouds, until March arrives, and the skies clear.

Whether it is your first experience touring, or you feel at home in the backcountry, a day touring in Niseko will take you away from the crowds to limitless options of untracked terrain and views that reach the Sea of Japan.

On the day, your experienced guide will pick you up and drop-off directly from your accommodation, and an avi pack (beacon, shovel and probe) is included in the tour for everyone. If you require touring equipment this can also be rented directly from us.
