useful information

When is this Trip operating?

The JaPOW Experience is operating from mid-December until mid-March.

Japan is blessed with the best powder conditions in the world, however, the most consistent and deepest snow is generally found in January and February. 

Early season there are often some powder days, however, there is no guarantee when the tap will turn on and at what point we can access certain BC zones. In March when spring arrives our guides will be ready to take advantage of the clear skies and stable conditions to get out into the backcountry, touring.

To discuss when will be the best time to visit based on your goals, please reach out to our team.

Ability level: all of our JaPOW riders must be at least a level 5 or above. We can cater the powder experience to your level, however, if you are not a strong intermediate rider, the zones you can visit will be more limited. 

Age: riders must be 14 + to enter the backcountry zones, and if under 18 they must be accompanied by an adult.

Discipline: mixed groups of skiers and boarders can ride together on The Japow Experience, however if there are riders within your group who are an intermediate level and new to powder we would recommend adding some lessons to your Trip. Lessons will focus on your powder technique before you head out into the backcountry and are single discipline only.

  • Flights: international and domestic flights are not included in the package.
