We had a sidecountry day at Furano followed by a daytrip to Asahidake with Whiteroom Tours lead by Sam. The tour was very professionally managed and every effort was made to maintain high standards of safety as well as finding good terrain and snow. The guides arrived on time and we felt we got the most out of the day. Highly recommended.

Phenomenal day out with Whiteroom

We had an incredible experience with Whiteroom. We were a bit hesitant to book at first because they don't do mixed groups and it was quite expensive for just 2 people to split a guide, but very glad we spent the money. Our original plan was to head to Asahidake for some touring, but the morning of, our guide Dave convinced us that the high winds could shut down the cable car and we may have better luck on the other side of the valley at Tokachidake (we actually ended up skiing Furanodake). So we hopped in the beautiful new transport van and headed out. This was a very good decision - we got a rare clear day with the sun out and tons of fresh snow, it was absolutely perfect conditions. The area was very busy with ski tourers, but since we were a small group and got an early start we were able to break away from the main pack, and Dave's knowledge of the area kept us ahead of everyone all day. The way the mountains were laid out there, the uptracks were fairly easy going up the ridges, and the runs down are long and steep, so you couldn't ask for better touring. Dave was super chill and a great guide, and helped us achieve a huge day; if we would have gone out on our own, we would have been following big groups around all day and just skiing the most obvious, skied out lines. My only advice would be try to find a few people to go with to split the cost with (was 60k yen for the day). Great experience!

Great two day guided trip out of Furano with Whiteroom Tours. Unfortunately there hadn't been the usual Hokkaido dumps for the previous few days so we weren't expecting epic days but Graeme (our guide) made sure he found out what we were after (fresh...) and managed to seek out some awesome runs at firstly Tomamu then Asahidake. Had a bit of hiking to achieve the freshies at Tomamu (side country through the trees) but well worth the effort. Asahidake was great but had to work again for fresh tracks. Went for a walk up to fumaroles etc as wasn't the best day snow wise.

Overall Graeme showed us a great experience incl tours of Tomamu buildings (!!) and onsen after Asahidake.
