Absolute pearler of a day, weathered lined up and it was on. Guides were legends. Terrain was nothing hectic but plenty of features and trees to have fun on. Would definitely recommend to anyone of any level. Only down full is that if you wanted to hit the onsen they offer it will cost you a couple of runs. See our video here

Great time for a diverse group

What a great experience! Super fun, low consequence, fluffy terrain. The team members were pros and made the day a highlight of our trip. We had ripping skiers, new powder skiers and snowboarders - there was something for our whole group.

They are short runs - but you get a lot for your money.

Make sure you don’t book on a Tuesday if you want the Onsen experience. We were bummed to miss it. See our video here

Untracked

Had a great day of untracked knee deep powder. Some runs were down the old ski field groomers and many involved well spaced trees.
I would say the the gradient and technicality of the runs would suit beginners to intermediate skiers, however we all had a great time because untracked powder is always enjoyable. See our video here

Perfect Day at Chise

Grant

A great day at Chise started with a friendly pick-up from our hotel by Tony. After a brief greet and orientation with the international crew it was time to hit the powder. Runs were short but awesome. We had 3-4 days of snowfall prior to our day and no-one on the mountain the day before, so the powder was deep and fresh. This was my first "back-country" experience, and while the runs were officially "unguided" there was always someone around the two times I needed to be fished out of the powder after a big fall. My travel partner had prior back country experience on big mountains and even he thought the day was awesome. See our video here

Chisenupuri Cat Skiing

25/01/2020
Worst Snowfall year in decades for japan so we didn’t have any fresh overnight but the snow we did have wasn’t trekked out at all. First tracks through most of it. Just a couple days old so it wasn’t the light fluffy stuff they’re famous for. Reminded me a bit of the heavy wet snow typical of Whistler. Snowcats were fast, spacious and reliable. Our guides English was pretty poor but once they showed you the left and right boundary you didn’t really need to know what he was saying. Terrain was not steep at all but had a plethora of pillows in powder fields, some awesome tree sections and overall very fun, long, lines. We did the true backcountry cat skiing with Rising Sun 2 days later in 18+ inches of fresh snow and to be honest we had more fun on the pillows and longer runs here at Chisenupuri. Logged 11,600 vertical feet on 11 runs here, compared to 5,600 feet on 9 runs on the Rising Sun day. Food was better here too, hot beef or pork on rice with soup and beer. On our way to lunch he took us down a different face that had deeeeep, light, fluffy JaPOW which was amazing. But we only rode it that one time. See our video here

Despite early season (still lots of bamboo) had a great time.
Brought a friend who was getting accustomed to powder skiing- perfect for him - not too steep.
Amazing pillows/features to launch off. Best lines seems to be to skiers left (open trees, fun kickers).
Nice CAT.
Amazing staff.
Delicious lunch.
Guides are great-there to facilitate but not get in your way.
Price increased from 2019 to 2020 season so value not as good as previous. See our video here

Kyle, Chase, Hiro and the rest of the crew are amazing! These guys will make sure you have an amazing day of skiing starting by picking you up at your lodge. Make sure you follow your ski patrollers to get the lay of the land. Then have all the fun you can (no shortage of things to huck off of) before skiing to the onsen. This is a great company and I highly suggest booking your trip with them. See our video here

The snow here was incredible. However, we had a really cold day (floating around 0 F) with gale force winds which made the snow difficult to work through. Additionally, the slopes are pretty mild so if you're looking for the steeps, this isn't the place for it. However, good tree skiing lines aplenty. See our video here

AMAZING DAY!!!!

We had an amazing day at Chise! The day began with sun shine and ended with 15cm of snow falling in the afternoon. The operation is solid--you get the entire mountain to youself and a dozen others! It's not steep terrain--low angle love is the way for this cat trip but unless is hasn't snowed in a few days, you're guaranteed freshies all day long. There is a lot of terrain to explore. The hot springs are amazing. The guides are awesome. All in all, super great operation and tons of fun. See our video here
