Chasing Japanese Pow II

Dennis Mah05/04/2019
My second round and it did not disappoint thanks to our excellent guides Andre, Ume, Aimee and Andy. And a big thanks to the camera work of Ume, our great memories captured in pixels. Our tour ran like a well-oiled machine without any major hiccup. Despite the lack of freshy fallen snow, we were always lead to some almost untouched stashes. I will definitely be back. Though it would have been nice if our hotel in Otaru had an onsen.

Did it again. Still GREAT!

Did it again. Still GREAT!

Dan Nevers02/03/2019
Did this trip in 2017 and loved it. Went to Alps in 2018 and wished we had just repeated with Japan Ski Tours. So we got smart and returned to Japan Ski Tours in Feb 2019.

Highly recommended to everyone who loves powder, tree skiing and Japanese food.

Just like on our 2017 trip, the guides were terrific and the other guests were cool.

Will do it again!

5 thumbs up from our family group (Storm Chaser Hokkaido Jan 17-23/19) Exceeded our expectations!!!! I appreciated the friendly welcome of all the guides (Kevin, Ume, Aimee, Andy and Brent), punctuality, communication, and accommodations . Thanks for the cultural insights, great food and drink suggestions and safe travels. There's no way first time ski visitors could ever find the snow stashes you led us to. You matched us up with great people. Life time memories were made!

I love JaPow

I love JaPow

Paul K28/01/2019
Trip was amazing. So much powder. Brent and his crew were awesome. Our group had a wide range of skill level and they accommodated everyone including the 2 guys that were looking for big drops. Powder was deep and they knew spots that were untracked. This trip wasn't just a ski trip it was also a cultural experience as they took us to different Japanese cuisine. Trip was well organized and the only thing you had to worry about is your next turn. I would highly recommend.

Amazing trip! The guides were great and made the experience what it was, the various restaurants we got to try out had delicious food, and the snow was deep. Would totally recommend to others looking for a great off piste ski experience.

Japanuary!!!

Gavin13/01/2019
The snow in Japan is legendary, deepest days of my life while on this trip! The guides were experts and took us to a different resort each day timing it right with the best snowfall and smallest crowds. They also took us out to great traditional Japanese dinners and local bars for drinks for those who wanted. An unforgettable powder and cultural experience.

Fantastic Father-Son Ski Trip

Jon Chorley02/03/2018
Epic snow, great guides and good company. I was nervous that late February (when my son Jack had school vacation) might be post peak but I was wrong. It snowed every day and the guides worked the locations we skied and the runs that we took to maximize our experience. Each day was fantastic in its own way with different resorts, runs and great snow. But the most amazing thing was that probably the best run was the last run of the entire trip - at 3:00pm - a huge tree filled bowl of waist deep totally untracked powder. Imagine a group of skiers, each able to have their own personal line, hollering and whooping with joy as they swooped down through the trees and the slope. Only in Japan. This is how memories are made. Thank you Luke, Aimee, Eric, Brent and Daniel. And thank you Jack.

Excellent trip. Snow, as ever, was excellent although not quite so deep as other years. Temperature was a little chilly to, albeit quite bearable. Guide, Aimee, was friendly, competent and knew the terrain. Food was excellent although a little too much red meat for me.

Niseko
Wonderful light and deep snow but take note: these mountains are not steep compared w US or Cañada. Most have a few hundred feet of tight trees followed by long shallow runouts. Accommodations were quite nice and food was pretty good. Guides seemed competent and patient. I’ve never been in snow as deep and light as this so it was a real treat!

AWESOME

AWESOME

Don Western08/02/2018
This was a bucket list trip but now I have to come back next year! if the body holds up. The snow was Epic as expected. Our guides were professional and our Driver Shin went out of his way to drive me around looking for goggles one night.
The accomodations were excellent. especially in Niseko. the unit had 3 rooms! good breakfast! in Asahikawa the room was smaller but the breakfast was excellent. both had good Onsen as well
Highly recommended trip
