Nagano-Niigata Local Secrets Tour

Aki Kitamura has grown up skiing and snowboarding (yes he does both) in the Nagano Niigata mountains and has a wealth of local knowledge that he and his guides are willing to share with a few lucky people.

This fabulous 6-day / 5-night tour is fully hosted & guided by Aki or one of his guides, and the tour is based at a wonderful Japanese family run pension (lodge) located in Madarao Kogen. It includes 5 days of guided skiing where you will be shown the local secret stashes within ski resort boundaries (including ski areas that are under the radar for most international visitors), in the side country, and also in the backcountry.

Skier/Boarder AbilityThis trip is geared toward advanced to expert skiers and boarders. You should at least be able to ski/ride down black runs with confidence and at a reasonable pace, and be in control all of the time.

Given that this tour incorporates backcountry skiing & boarding, participants must carry avalanche safety gear (which is included in the package price).

Most terrain will be accessible by traversing from lifts however there may be some short walks depending on the group's desires.
