Myoko Complete Backcountry Tour

The Myoko Kogen area (which also potentially includes nearby resorts like Madarao/Tangram & Togakushi) is renowned for its abundant snow falls and fabulous tree skiing. The area around Myoko provides diverse terrain with big steep lines and remote untouched tree skiing zones. No crowds and almost too much snow makes Myoko a paradise for backcountry powder hounds.

The Myoko Complete Backcountry Tour includes a tail guide and a guarantee of a Japanese speaking guide. This will assist in getting away from the ski fields and into the remote backcountry areas of countryside Japan.

All guides are professionally trained and qualified and are in the field everyday and know the conditions and terrain inside out.

The guides also have an extensive network in the local community enabling them to access local knowledge and information from the surrounding snow community.

Ability & FitnessThese tour is aimed at skiers and riders who are advanced to expert. In addition, these tours involve a lot of up-hill hiking on skis, split board or snow shoes so you will need to have a very good level of fitness.

Equipment RequiredYou will have avalanche safety gear supplied as part of the package, however you will also need touring gear which could be skis with touring bindings & skins, a split board with skins and/or snow shoes.

These tours can also be customised to your dates and group (subject to availability). Enquire here for a custom quote>>

Advanced bookings are essential as these tours book out well ahead of time.
