Day 1            

It’s go time! When you land at Sapporo New Chitose Airport your private transfer will be waiting to take you on the final 2 hr 30 mins journey to Niseko. Take some time to get settled into your hotel before Rhythm picks you back up. We’ll then head to our Base store for your gear fitting so you’re ready to hit the mountain the next morning. If you’re lucky it might be happy hour at our cafe, the perfect time to grab your first Classic of the trip.

Day 2

First day on the hill…we’ll ease you into it with our Niseko United Resort Tour; your guide will meet you at your hotel or on snow, and don’t stress they’ll have your lift tickets ready to go. Today, your guide will take you to all the best pow spots in Niseko United, in the process you’ll have some time to get your ski legs back and as our guides are all fully-qualified instructors they will be able to offer you some powder riding tips if needed. In the afternoon, we will swing by Rhythm Base to get you sorted with avi gear so you’re all set to head out of Niseko’s famous gate system the next day. For those feeling particularly eager we recommend a night ride session to experience powder riding under the lights.

Day 3

Let’s head out the gates…today we will make a beeline for wherever the conditions are best on the day. The typical areas that we aim to explore via the gate system are either the Backbowl or Osawa bowl of Annupuri, or depending on the snow we might head for the North Face & Hanazono facing East Ridge.

Day 4

Rinse and repeat. We’ll be heading back out the gates today, and we usually switch it up from the day before and make our way out into the BC through different gates, meaning you get the chance to experience as much of the Niseko United backcountry as possible!

Day 5

Adventure day! Time to jump in the car as we head off to either Rusustu, Kiroro or Moiwa Resort. Your guide will make a call on where it is going to be best, depending on the conditions on the day, your style and of course your preference. 

Are your legs feeling particularly strong? This day can also be switched out for a backcountry touring day if you feel like earning your turns and want to get deep into the Niseko BC.

Day 6

Rinse and repeat. You’ll have your choice of resort or another BC touring day. It’s also important to finish off the tour in traditional Hokkaido style with a visit to a local onsen at the end of the day. Your muscles will thank you!

Day 7

This one is totally up to you. You’ll be free to independently explore all of your new favourite spots you discovered during your time with your Rhythm guide. Or you could just take the day off and relax.

Day 8

And before you know it, it’s time to head home. When you checkout of your hotel you can leave your rental gear there and we will arrange the pick-up for you, zero hassle. Take some time to enjoy your last breakfast and enjoy the final views of beautiful Mt Yotei before you’re picked up in your private transfer to head back to Sapporo New Chitose Airport.
