Lift Access / Sidecountry Tours 

Lift Access & Sidecountry Tours

It’s minimum input with maximum output, in our Hokkaido lift-access tours.

Your guide will tailor your day of adventure, specifically for you

and your crew. Whether you’re on a big family holiday, or a

one-off trip with your best mates who shred, savour those

epic moment, with no one else there - these tours are all private.

It doesn’t matter if it’s your first time riding powder, or you are seasoned powder-hounds, we will find the terrain to suit each and every skier and snowboarder.

Niseko & Moiwa in particular are a great example of how diverse sidecountry can be. The 11 gates we have here, dotted across the mountain, all offer something different. Whether you want tight turns between the trees, open powder fields, valleys that act like a half-pipe, steeper terrain, or gently undulating hills, away from the often busy piste, there is a gate for you.

Ride the best lines of

your life. Then jump 

on a ski lift to do it

all over again.


 "Thanks for two memorable days of skiing at Niseko. Great skiing, lots of fun. Anyone can guide on a sunny day, but you found us some great runs and deep snow in quite challenging conditions. Challenging, but we felt safe with you. We will definitely look you up if and when we return to Niseko for more Steep and Deep."

- Jim Stewart

There are so many resorts within a short drive from our base, that offer some of the greatest lift-access skiing and snowboarding lines in the country. As a slightly cheaper option to our Hokkaido Powder Roadtrip, we provide all transportation to the best choice of location on the day.


If it is your first time riding powder, we can ensure that your guide also has experience coaching, to help you get the most out of your tour.
