Words cannot describe it. Snow is lived up the Japan hype. These guys run an unbelievable program -from the food to the local knowledge of the hills, everything far exceeded expectations.

Even the hotel accommodations were great. I'll be back again for sure.

If you're looking for the best snow, and unbelievable culture, and guides that know what they are talking about Japan Ski Tours is the way to go. These guys know what they're doing. Knowledge about the terrain, and which mountains to go to. Great food, nightlife, and onsens. These guys have a place to crash if they ever need one stateside.

Highly reccomended

We had so much fun 2 years ago on the Storm Chaser trip that we came back this year for the Frontier Explorer trip! Once again, we were blown away by the experience. Daniel and Brent were excellent guides, both on and off mountain. So much fun and hilarity exploring the small ski resorts and the quirky parts of Japanese culture. Can't recommend highly enough!

Incredible Snow - Remarkable Guides

Peter Johnston03/03/2019
Home now from my first ski trip to Japan and am still grinning over the amazing conditions. Our group booked the Frontier Explorer tour. It should be called Powder Chaser because thanks to our incredible guides Daniel and Eric that's what we got to do for the week! And man, did we smash the powder thanks to their great knowledge of this region. To top off this unbelievable skiing, Daniel did a great job introducing us to the wonderful Japanese culture Apres Ski.

Recently went on the Frontier Explorer. Tour with 4 other friends. Had an amazing time - perfect group size and all were well matched in ability. Not one thing I could think of to improve things... skiing ✔️ accommodations ✔️ Choice of local eateries ✔️ Mode of transport ✔️ (Although a roof basket for skis would be welcome) guides ✔️✔️✔️ (Daniel and Eric were lots of fun)
Looking for an intro to “Japow”? Then this is the one for you! A word of caution however, the little beech trees that look flexible are NOT (hereafter known as the Japanese Cement Tree!!)
Take a few days before to see Tokyo, and take advantage of the amazing shipping to get gear sent from and tonthe airport - saves a LOT of grief!!

Japan Ski Tours is Amazing! : Frontier Explore trip was insane!!!

Forrest Shinners27/02/2019
Night Skiing in 3 ft of fresh snow!!
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Japan ski tours. they added so much value. I have never done a tour or ski tour so I was extremely skeptical but I was blown away. there is no way I would have been able to replicate the experience we had on the frontier explore trip on my own for the same cost. it was literally my best ski trip ever and I have been skiing my whole life, been around the world, skiing resorts, Cats and helicopters. I will be going back next year again without question!

Truly fantastic tour of the Tohoku region of Japan.
Excellent guides and very professional, always willing to help get those extra tasks done and completed to make the trip an awesome experience.
Accomodation was excellent,dinners were great and good fun every night, lunches were always very good on the hill.
Powder snow and terrain knowledge was excellent too.
Plenty of spares for equipment failures carried by the guides and in the van.
Great tree skiing and cat tour!
Over all a 5 star rated powder tour.
I'll be back for sure!
Thank you Brent Daniel and the team at ski Japan.
Yours sincerely
Andrew Nicholas

Just back from the Frontier Explorer trip with japanskitours and cannot begin to express how much fun we had!
We are a group of five experienced skiers from Canada (and a token American) who have traveled all over North America looking for powder trips. Our adventure for the legendary Japan "goods" did not disappoint!
Our main guide was Daniel, who was assisted by Eric for several days. These two gents were so much fun to ski with. Their intimate knowledge of the area helped immensely on a couple days with high winds and poor conditions. We did not have a day where we did not ski powder. I certainly will not forget the "chest deep" runs we managed to sneak in!
They are not kidding around when they advertise an authentic cultural experience! We really enjoyed the entertainment, food and activities off hill. It was great being away from the "westernized" ski areas. The benefit was that powder runs -not stashes -last for days!
Would recommend without hestitation!!

Japan Ski Tours

Noah Bedford29/01/2019
Awesome trip with Japan Ski Tours this January. I was dreaming about skiing Japan for years and it lives up to the hype thanks to our guides! I skied the deepest snow ive ever skied, and found fresh snow everyday even if it didnt snow the night before. It would have been a lot less pow and a lot more attempting to maneuver the mountains with out them. Thanks a tonne!!! Super appreciate the dream trip!

Frontier Express is the bomb

William Baumgaertner25/01/2019
We were treated to an exceptional cultural and physical opportunity to see some of the most amazing people and places during our Frontier Epress exexpedition in early January 2019. We were transported, fed, guided, and entertained throughout the entire week. The skiing was challenging and the choices for restaurants and entertainment were spot on. Doug and Brent Potter along with guide Eric Greene treated us like royalty. The description of the tour was accurate. The trees were tight so I would say this tour is for an advanced skier with good lungs.
