Japan Ski Tours & Snowboard Trips

Particularly for advanced and expert riders, Japan ski tours offer the best way to get the most out of Japan skiing and snowboarding and score the best powder snow. We offer a range of ski tours in Japan, many of which chase the famed Japan snow and head to places that offer Japanese cultural experiences. Why should you consider a Japan ski tour?

There are literally hundreds of Japan ski areas with fantastic powder snow yet many of them are very small; not conducive to a week long trip but they are ideal for a one or two day assault. These areas are generally difficult to get to using public transport so a vehicle is the most efficient way to get around. The best way to experience these Japanese ski areas is with a qualified guide who knows the terrain intimately so you get to ski or snowboard the best lines in the best powder with your safety being paramount.

You don't necessarily need to be an expert as there are also many intermediate Japan ski trips available.

Use the filters in the left-hand-column to filter the range of Japan ski tours by dates, how long you want to go for, whether you want to go backcountry skiing, and various attributes like your ability or whether you want a guided or unguided tour (for example). Or you can look at our Japan ski tours schedule, which lists a summary of the tours by date and provides an indication of tour availability.
