Backcountry and Guiding
Backcountry and Guiding
Venture into hidden terrain, and ski or snowboard in perfect, untouched powder. With tours suitable for intermediate and expert riders or skiers, enter the beautiful Niseko backcountry and experience a new challenge. From exploring Niseko’s legendary gates or hiking Mount Yotei we will be able to find the perfect tour for you. All tours are private and include transport.

Lift assisted backcountry tours

Lift assisted backcountry tours are perfect for intermediate riders who aren’t experienced in powder or advanced riders who don’t want to spend the day hiking! We also recommend these tours to our guests who want to experience the best tree runs, back bowls and gates but are unsure where to start. These tours range from half day 2-4 hour tours to full day 6 hour tours. Locations include Niseko United, Rusutsu, Kiroro, Kokusai and Teine.

Hiking backcountry tours

For our guests looking to explore beyond the resort boundaries a hiking tour is for you. These tours are ideal for advanced riders looking for a touring introduction and backcountry enthusiasts who want to get away from the crowds. All hiking tours are full day 6 hour tours. Locations include Iwaonupuri, Shiribetsu, Chisenupuri, Niimi Area and Mount Yotei.

Photography package

Niseko Photography and Guiding are a great company whose experienced backcountry guides are also professional photographers. They offer both lift assisted and hiking backcountry tours with photography, and will take magazine-quality photos of you throughout the tour. If you would prefer a video to photos it is an extra ¥10,000 and includes a professionally edited short film with music.
