    Myoko Powder Tour

    The Myoko Powder Tour is based in Myoko Kogen where the group stays in a Japanese pension right in the main village. Myoko Kogen is made up of various ski areas and is famous for colossal amounts of snow. Pow is virtually guaranteed in Myoko and the guides are with you riding every day to ensure you score the goods.

    Ride deep Japan powder and experience the local culture with our professional guides leading the way. Included on this tour is 5 full days riding with the guides at 4 different resorts on the enormous Mt Myoko-san. There is also leave one day free so you can choose an day trip that best suits you; head out into the backcountry on a guided snowmobile tour, spend a day exploring one of the neighbouring resorts of Seki Onsen, Arai or Madarao or join a tour to the famous Jigokoudani Snow Monkey park. It’s up to you.

    The Myoko Powder Tour is running at the peak of Japan’s snow season, so be prepared. The consistent storms bring massive quantities of light, dry powder snow to this region. Your guides have an in depth knowledge of the local area and will be able to find any type of terrain to suit your ability – whether that be riding mellow tree runs or chasing some of the deep powder that Myoko is renowned for. Myoko is a quieter and less developed resort means we can usually still find deep powder stashes days after a storm. If weather permits we will head out to Seki Onsen, this place is renowned for scoring more snow than pretty much anywhere else in the area and if a big storms rolls in and hits Myoko you can expect to get waist-deep, sometimes neck-deep, turns in this freeriding powder magnet!

    The village in Myoko is small but has everything you could need in a small ski town from rental stores to great local bars and restaurants. This tour is fully guided and hosted.

    To keep you afloat in the deep Myoko powder, all guests get access to our fleet or powder boards from Nitro Snowboards.

    Guides & Hosting 

    Your guides on tour are dedicated snowboarders who have spent most of their lives chasing winters around the world. With an in-depth knowledge of the local area and terrain you can be assured they will always find you the best snow conditions available. The goal is to get everybody on tour enjoying themselves and pushing your riding in a relaxed and fun environment.

    The guests to guide ratio is 6 : 1, so you can get the most out of your time in Myoko. There’s nothing worse than riding with a large group, especially on a powder day!

    There will be coaches and guides on-snow every day. At night there will be the hosts on hand to show you around the local area. With the small groups, you’ll feel like part of the crew and not just another face in the crowd.

    Optional Backcountry Day

    Myoko offers amazing backcountry terrain. Advanced riders may opt to add a fully guided backcountry day on request. Rental backcountry equipment is available to rent.

    Optional Backcountry Snowmobile Tours

    Mint offer day trips to a private backcountry zone where you get the opportunity to ride high powered backcountry snowmobiles in deep, untracked snow. All safety equipment and instruction is provided.

    Solo Travellers

    If you’re travelling solo you won’t be alone. In fact the tour is perfect for solo travellers, and you'll be matched up with someone to room with for the entire time. Not only are the guides with you on-mountain during the day, they keep the stoke going well into the night, so you’ll always have crew to hang out with and places to go.
    A typical day on tour will consist of an early rise for a group breakfast at the lodge. The guides will discuss the plan for the day, taking into consideration which resort will have the best conditions. The guides will either make the call to ride the local resort by the lodge or to make the short bus ride to the neighboring resorts.

    In Myoko there will be freeride sessions, trick tips, park sessions and demos. The guides will be riding with the groupto help find the best snow and terrain to best suit everyone. You have the option of riding with the guides, breaking into your own groups, exploring the town or just relaxing in an onsen for a well earned break.

    Each night the group will head into the village to eat at one of the local restaurants and after dinner there will always be tours to local bars for anyone wanting to explore the nightlife.
