Sharing our passion with you:
Who we are
Learning to ski, or standing ready to drop at the top of a steep open face, can be intimidating experiences. We always hand-pick our crew of ski and snowboard instructors and guides, from the best of the best.
Having now operated in Hokkaido for nearly 10 years, our ever growing understanding of the uniqueness of this island has enriched the experience our roadtrips and backcountry tours.
Even if you've been coming back to Niseko and the surrounding area for years, we would put money on the fact we can surprise you with some secret powder stash or epic volcano-top hike you've never even heard of before.
The drive and passion of our
instructors are what have
propelled Japan Powder
Connection to become one of
the premier guiding companies
on the island.
Even though we do love teaching, our focus is now on pursuing big backcountry ski lines, spending our down time hiking and exploring new, uncharted territories. This continually helps us to expand our already extensive knowledge of the ski resorts and magnificent volcanic mountains all over Hokkaido.
Our number #1 favourite Spring skiing destination is in Hokkaido’s own Daisetsuzan National Park in the centre of Hokkaido. It is not uncommon for us to disappear for several days into the Hokkaido high-country, laden with skis, skins, an avalanche pack, and a tent.
Our patient, enthusiastic team are the masters of fine-tuning and specialised coaching, there to help you progress quickly, efficiently.
