Hakuba gets huge snowfall but with the keen local skiers and riders lined up first thing in the morning after a big dump the resorts get tracked out as quick as anywhere else. Several of Hakuba's resorts have excellent side-country access where you can get the nest taste possible of Off Piste Japan. Access the goods with the lift services of the resorts and then ride the excellent "side-country" terrain. Go with the knowledge and expertise of local professional ski & split-board guides into the best steep powder stashes in Japan...right here in Hakuba!
Skiing and riding will be lead safely into great off piste Japan areas where we can play in open glades, ride soft pillows and slide through superb tree runs! Get lots of vertical in a day, ride with guides who know the terrain and can guide you off piste and back again with little or no hiking.
