Hakuba Boundless Weekend

Make the most of your public holidays and long weekends with the Hakuba Boundless Weekend Tour, a sidecountry and backcountry tour of the Hakuba area. The tour is for 3 nights and 2 days, with the option for additional guiding on your departure day.

You'll stay at the slopeside Hamon Lodge which provides a delightful Japanese feel, and has creature comforts such as a communal lounge and restaurant and bar.

Ski touring and ski mountaineering at Japan's mecca, the Northern Japanese Alps, is a fabulous destination to push your limits and ski the deep and steep back country that is hands down the best big mountain skiing that Japan has to offer. Only a very tiny number of people who visit the area ever venture into the backcountry; and that's because it is very steep and dangerous for those without local knowledge and experience.

Goodguides have over 10 years experience of skiing in central Japan giving them an intimate knowledge of the local mountains, weather patterns and local culture. Owner and operator Jerry Williams has fluency in the Japanese language, and his love of Japanese culture will ensure you get a well rounded trip with the absolute best in both skiing and culture.

All guides are professionally trained and qualified and are in the field everyday and know the conditions and terrain inside out. They also have an extensive network in the local community enabling them to access local knowledge and information from the surrounding snow community.

Ability & Fitness

These tours are aimed at skiers and riders who are strong intermediate riders wanting to gain more backcountry experience, and advanced to expert to riders. Ski touring groups will do a lot of up-hill hiking/skinning on skis, split board or snow shoes so you will need to have a very good level of fitness. Side country and ski touring groups will be split accordingly.

Equipment Required

You will have avalanche safety gear supplied as part of the package. Ski touring groups will also need touring gear which could be skis with touring bindings & skins, a split board with skins and/or snow shoes. Goodguides has a range of backcountry rental at great rates.

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


Don't just look at it; do it!

Staying in beautiful Hakuba...

...plenty of restaurants & bars

Hamon Lodge

The lodge has a distinctly Japanese feel with traditional décor such as tatami flooring and shoji screens in the rooms, along with beautiful wooden furniture, yet it has some great features that are well appreciated by westerners such as comfortable beds, a relaxing living area, and a restaurant and bar where you can enjoy a cold beer.

Guest Rooms

The delightful rooms have warm lighting, soft timber finishes, traditional tatami flooring and original shoji screens that reflect a true Japanese style ryokan, representative of the real rural mountain village accommodation you’d expect in Japan. The rooms are warm, have comfortable mattresses and plenty of space for all your luggage requirements.

The lodge has double or twin rooms for up to 2 guests. Bathroom facilities are shared which includes an onsen style wet room in-house, so you can soak after a long day on the hill and rest those weary muscles.

Location

Hamon Lodge is located ski-in ski-out at the Hakuba Tsugaike Ski Resort, which offers the best sidecountry and backcountry terrain in Hakuba.

Tsugaike has its own distinctly Japanese village that has a smattering of restaurants and bars so you’ll be well fed and watered. The lodge offers easy access to local village shuttles services so you can explore the Hakuba Valley in its entirety.

Other Lodge Amenities

The lodge has a drying room and the heaters will be left running all night (unlike at some Japanese lodges!).


Western-style beds in Japanese rooms

Lovely dining area
