Niseko Black Snowsports Guided Day Tours

Niseko Black Snowsports offers day guided services in and around Niseko/Moiwa plus day trips to Rusutsu and Kiroro.

Niseko Black guides all have plenty of local knowledge, as well as either ISIA status and/or the relevant Avalanche safety certification.

All tours are for advanced to expert skiers & boarders and are not suitable to intermediate & below as they steep terrain and technical tree runs.

It is mandatory that all participants have avalanche safety gear (beacon, shovel & probe) and a backpack to carry this gear. Niseko Black can rent you a beacon, shovel & probe but you will need your own backpack.

Skins and snow shoes are not a requirement as all terrain is accessible by lifts and at the most a small amount of boot packing.

Mixed GroupsNiseko Black are presently the only company we are aware of that provides MIXED-GROUP backcountry tours in the Niseko area. This means you can join a group as a solo skier/boarder or a couple for a fixed per person rate. NOTE: At this stage these mixed-group tours only operate on Monday's and Thursday's subject to guides being available.

Book a mixed-group backcountry day (available Monday or Thursday only) here>>

Private GroupsIf you have a group of 3 or more, it is more economical to go with a PRIVATE GROUP rate and this is available any day of the week subject to a guide being available.

Book a Niseko/Moiwa private group backcountry tour for you & your friends here>>
