    Sapporo Investment Tour

    If you have made the investment to visit Niseko (or one of the other resorts in Hokkaido) then this extra small investment will deliver a fine return!

    The Sapporo Investment Tour is a fully customisable tour for PRIVATE GROUPS only. You can add an extra day/night and easily adjust the start / departure times to suit your schedule.

    The itinerary is based on 2 nights in Sapporo (the snowiest city in Japan) chasing powder at one of Japan's steepest ski areas Sapporo Teine and checking out the unique side & backcountry at Sapporo Kokusai. Sapporo has literally thousands of restaurants & bars so if food and/or partying is your thing, you won't be disappointed.

    The price indicated above includes 2 nights 3-star hotel accommodation with options to upgrade to a fancier hotel if you desire.

    The package includes pickup from your accommodation in Niseko & transfers in a comfy 4wd van to the ski areas on guided days and to Sapporo.

    There are limited guides available for these tours so you will need to be quick to lock down a tour & date.

    AbilityTo get the most out of this tour, RSGs recommend you be a MINIMUM strong intermediate skier/boarder. You should be able to confidently link together tight turns on black runs and ideally have powder skiing/riding experience.

    As it is your tour, you can ultimately influence your guide as to the types of terrain you want to ski/ride in and whether you want to do any hiking or touring away from the lifts to access the steep & deep.


    A bit of this

    .and a some of this...

    ...and plenty of this!

    Accommodation

    Because this is a custom package, the accommodation will be chose based on your group size.

    In Sapporo, there are some very good 3-star hotels that RSGs use however there is also an upgrade option to a 4-star like the Mercure or the Cross Hotel (subject to availability). The hotels based on the advertised package price have single western beds (twin or triple-share) and all rooms have private en suite.

    A buffet breakfast will be provided each morning with a reasonable selection of western food.
