About Evergreen Outdoor Center
Evergreen Outdoor Center, based at the foot of the Japan Northern Alps in Hakuba, Nagano has provided tours, lessons and instruction to tens of thousands of clients since beginning operations in 2000. Through the Green Season (mid-April to early-November) we offer a diverse range of outdoor programs including canyoning, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, summer camps, international school programs and more!
In the Winter tours and courses on offer at Evergreen Backcountry Guides include ski / snowboard / splitboard backcountry and off-piste tours, snowshoe guiding, and avalanche skills courses while our professional team at Evergreen International Ski School offer quality English group and private ski and snowboard instruction.
With programs that run year-round, we aim to incorporate a sense of respect and stewardship for our natural surroundings; as they are not only a great place to play in, but are home to a vast array of life including ourselves.
“Thanks, Evergreen Outdoor Center. Absolutely the best ski experience that we have ever had. The whole family had a world of fun. From beginners to parallel skiing in 4 lessons. I highly recommend the experience to anyone from ages 3 to 40+. Thanks again!”
THE JOHNSONS, NY & TOKYO
“Outstanding! Amazing! There aren’t enough adjectives to describe this trip, and this experience you have given us. The sports, the culture, the food, everything from day one to twelve has been amazing. It was a lot of fun, and you guys have been great. I’ll be back!”

“After all these years I finally got to do the Avalanche Skills Training course. Recommended to anyone who cares for their mates & themselves, and to have more awareness of the dangers out there. To the staff, especially Dave. Thanks, you may have saved my life!”
“Hey everybody at Evergreen Outdoors! We were a group of six absolutely awful beginners. Despite very achy legs, we are all glad we gave snowboarding and skiing a go! Thanks James – I’ll try skiing next time! Thanks to Dave for discounts, lifts and general tips, etc!”
The mission of Evergreen Outdoor Center is to allow for the growth and development of the human spirit through personal interaction with the natural environment, personal challenge and teamwork, and through always accommodating individual needs while maintaining a high standard of safety.Dave Enright
