Ultimate Early Season Camps OverviewHead to Niseko Japan in the early season and get Japow before all your mates! By going early season on one of the Ultimate Early Season Camps you can also beat the high season rates and crowds and start your season on the right foot with Black Diamond Tours. This camp is new for the 2018-19 season!

Based out of the Black Diamond Lodge in Niseko, you'll get to visit 4 different resorts, complete a 2-day avalanche skills training course, get an introduction to backcountry touring and you'll also score a day of cat skiing at Chisenpuri with The House of Powder!

You'll even get in a final sightseeing and party night in Sapporo as the icing on the cake!

While January is known as the deepest and best time of the season to be here, December delivers as much or more snow on average and minus the crowds. The backcountry however can be limited at this time due to the thick Japanese bush that requires ample coverage, but the good news is that the ski runs are still relatively free of powder hounds and the BDT team knows the best places to take you on any given day.
