Otoe Cat Skiing Packages

Otoe NAC Cat Skiing will not be operating for the 2022/23 season.

A day or more of NAC Otoe cat skiing is the perfect addition to a trip to the Asahikawa or Furano area. If staying in Asahikawa, you can enjoy all that this city has to offer and its energetic vibe and also revel in the deep fresh powder. Or Furano offers a great ski resort and easy access to other nearby ski resorts. 

NAC Cat Skiing Japan is great for skiers of strong intermediate ability and up (and advanced snowboarders and uo), but it’s particularly well suited to up and coming powder hounds and first time cat skiers, or those looking for a relaxed day of powder skiing.

Check out the NAC cat skiing overview page for more reasons to go to Otoe and information on the location. 

The Otoe Powder Cat tour package includes a day (8:30am-4pm) of cat skiing, guiding, and use of an avalanche beacon. An amazing lunch is taken in a local restaurant, after which you can go back outside to feast on some more powder.

All the face shots can be captured by the staff who are on hand to take photos and video, but feel free to BYO camera as well.

Cat skiing is available as either a group tour where you join others and pay per person, or a private tour where you pay for the snowcat and have your own group of up to 12 people.

Ability Level

The required minimum ability level is intermediate skiers and advanced snowboarders and you need to have experience with riding powder. Riders should feel comfortable on any run at one of the Hokkaido ski resorts including trees and gullies. You should be a fit and strong skier or snowboarder, but you don't have to be an expert.

Backcountry skiing is not for beginner skiers. If you aren't sure, please make a booking enquiry.

The age requirement is 13 years old and over. Ages 16 to 19 years are welcome to go cat skiing by themselves, but a waiver form must be signed by a guardian.
