Our ski mountain Fuji expedition is a four day adventure that gives us time to practice, climb, ski and if time permits, explore the ancient forests at the base of the mountain. This is an expedition for experienced skiers who are fit and healthy. You should be comfortable in steep and potentially icy terrain and you may be climbing and skiing for up to 7 hours per day at altitude. Downhill skiing equipment and downhill skiing boots are not appropriate for this expedition. Alpine skis with alpine skiing boots or tele-mark skis with plastic tele-mark boots are ideal.

The height of mountain Fuji (3775 m) also dictates to us the pace at which we must travel. On this climb our guide will train you in proper climbing techniques and monitor team participants acclimatisation. We have allocated four days for this expedition and we expect to use day one as a training day, day two to climb to about stage 8 or about 2900 m. Weather permitting day three will be our summit day and just like our summer hike, our aim is to reach the summit by sunrise. This loose timetable is of course dependent on both the weather and snow conditions and the progress of the participants. If time permits, day four will see us hike and ski back down the old trails through the ancient forests at the base of mountain Fuji to the Sengen shrine, the home of the deities who guard mountain Fuji.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Meet at Kawaguchiko Station approximately 9:00 a.m. for bus trip to 5th station. Luggage to be stored in hotel and begin climbing practice on the mountain (note: depending on group, can be met in Tokyo or Osaka for transport to mountain base).

Day 2: Depending on group skills, fitness, weather and snow condition, climb to the 8th stage for practice climb and ski.

Day 3: Ideally this will be our summit day. Depart pre dawn and climb to the summit. Then return to the 5th station on skis.

Day 4: Extra day in the event of bad weather on day 3 or to ski/walk through the pine forests to the Sengen shrine. Evening transfer to Kawaguchiko station. Own arrangements.
