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.
