Mintara Express Tour Welcome to Kamui Mintara - The Playground of the Gods – equipped with Hokkaido's biggest mountains, most impressive alpine terrain, and home to the lightest, driest snow on the island, this area is aptly named by Hokkaido's native Ainu people.

This trip is an example of a customised private tour that Black Diamond Tours can take you and your group on. You can customise the tour to suit your needs. Please enquire for a quote on any customisations you require.

This trip is well suited to skiers and riders who have already explored the depths of Niseko's powder and ready to see what Central Hokkaido has to offer. This 7 day (5 skiing days) trip starts from Furano. From here mountain destinations include Asahidake, Kurodake, Tokachidake, Furano, Kamui and in a real stretch even Tomamu can be brought into the mix.

For 5 full days you'll be taken to the best skiing in the Mintara region before being shuttled to Sapporo.

AbilityThis tour is designed for advanced and above skiers and boarders. It is a tour that includes touring so you will need a full backcountry touring kit (skis plus skins or split-board / snowshoes for boarders).

The amount of hiking and touring each day will ultimately depend on the snow conditions on the day as to where to get the best line for each run.

If you don't have any BC gear, the tour operator can kit you out with rental gear.
