Shizukuishi Cat Powder Adventure

Please note: these tours are for PRIVATE GROUPS ONLY of up to 6 guests i.e. you cannot join a group as a solo / small group.

Make your powder dreams a reality with this combined Shizukuishi cat skiing & lift-access backcountry day tour!

The day starts with a pick-up from your accommodation in Appi Kogen (pick-ups can be arranged in other locations) and then it's off to Shizukuishi Cat Skiing for 4 epic runs of around 760 metres of vertical each run in a disused ski area adjacent to Shizukuishi Resort.

The snow cat travels up the side of an old piste run and there are options of skiing back down the piste on the first couple of runs if the powder is good, otherwise it is into the trees for a majestic experience. Due to the topography, a traverse or ski/walk at the bottom of some runs may be required and sometimes van pick-ups are used to get you back to the cat.

Then after a short break for lunch (optional buffet at the Prince Hotel), by combining lifts and some optional short hikes / skinning you will have up to 3 incredible runs (depending on timing/conditions/group speed) to experience the amazing sidecountry/backcountry at Shizukuishi.

The snow at Shizukuishi stays dry and fresh for many days after a snowfall so the freshies around the outskirts are plentiful.

At the end of skiing/riding, grab a couple of well earned beverages and enjoy the ride back to your accommodation whilst re-living your amazing day with your comrades.
