This is the ultimate Hokkaido ski journey. This fully guided 8 day tour takes you to central Hokkaido's premier resorts. Ski Furano, ski Kamui, ski Tomamu, ski Asahi Dake and ski Nukabira. As well as that you can visit the spectacular ice festival in the famous Sounkyo Gorge. Transport is via private mini bus giving us complete autonomy. Each day our expert guides will show you the best on and off piste runs, hidden powder bowls, safe access and exit points, best eateries and after hours attractions.
