Mt Yotei

Had an incredible time hiking up Mt Yotei with our guide Torin. Everything was easily arranged through the website. Our group did not have much backcountry experience and Torin was able to show us all of the techniques we needed to successfully climb/skin up Mt Yotei. On the way down, he found us untouched powder. Overall, an incredible experience!

Wow,

I just got back from 7 days in Niseko and 3 days with Niseko Zen.
What an amazing experience. Saki and team brought our trip from memorable to life changing :)

My first experience truly touring some amazing mountains. I had done lots of off-piste and peak runs before, but this was an experience on another level.

I believe what makes these guys great is, they are deeply experienced in the area, not just a one season and done guide, you can tell they care about the region and area.

Just go ahead and book, you will not be disappointed

Worth Every Dollar!!

Simon
02/02/2020
This was the first time I paid for a day tour, and I can say that Saki and team at Niseko Zen made it very worthwhile!!

After listening to what my group was looking for, Saki tailored a customized day plan. We ended up booking a second and third day because we all had such a good time and felt it was such good value.

Each day we did something different. He took us to ride fresh powder tracks on parts of the mountain people do not know of. We also snowshoed up a mountain and rode down. So much fun!

Saki made us feel safe in the mountains because he knows them off the back of his hand.

Thank you so much and see you soon!

Great day with Niseko Zen!

Great day with Niseko Zen!

Owner and lead guide Saki had helped create a great experience for myself and 4 of my closest friends during our stay in Niseko. He not only took us out into the backcountry for a great day of boarding/skiing he extended his knowledge of the area and helped us in more ways then we could’ve imagined. I consider Saki a lifetime friend now. Myself and the boys would return the favor if he or anyone part of the niseko zen family decided to ski in the states. I am definitely looking forward to ride with Niseko zen the next time I’m in Japan.

Three guided days with Niseko Zen

JV

We booked Niseko Zen for three days of backcountry snowboarding. Day 1 was lift accessed backcountry in Niseko, day 2 was a full backcountry day in the back of the Niseko range, and day 3 was a side country trip to Rusutsu. Saki knew all the areas very well and he was very good at accessing our fitness and technical levels. i would highly recommend booking Niseko Zen.

Great day with Saki to the summit of Mt Yotei. Perfect guiding, great skier, caring for all details, solving all problems that came up (including spare skins i forgot at home...) and amazing route back to the car. Unforgettable sunny day with the best company. Hope to see you again in the Pirinees Saki!!!

Niseko Zen

Craig
20/01/2020
Niseko Zen was an easy fun way to get into the backcountry in Niseko. I came from the United States and they were very accommodating and easy to work with. The guide understood our abilities and was able to cater to what we wanted to ski. It could not have been handled any smoother to get us into waist deep powder when the snow was less then ideal everywhere else.

On an off season in northern Japan, Saki and his crew at Niseko Zen took us to some more remote areas of the region in order to find the goods. We were connected with guides local to areas that were empty and untouched. Throughout our time together, the mood of the guides were fun and uplifting and full of knowledge. We got some great turns in and I am looking forward to going back. What a trip and what great vibes !

Josh was a great guide. Fun, funny, knowledgable, great skiier/boarder. He helped us with technique on our first day split-boarding. Most importantly, we trecked just a little bit further than other groups to find the gnarly 50 deg drop-in to 3 feet of fresh, dry, untracked powder in the was preserved by the shade and extra deep due to wind depositing. He seemed very knowledgable about how the wind and sun affected snow conditions and it paired off with the best run of our life.

After an average early season day in the ski resort I was worried for backcountry conditions, but these guys definitely knows where to find the best powder!! Thanks to them I could smashed my deepest pow day ever !
The crew is friendly and always checked all parameters to enjoy the session safely in the best conditions.
I will totally recommend Niseko Zen to my friends.

Après une journée moyenne de pré saison dans la station de ski j’étais inquiet pour les conditions en backcountry, mais ils savent clairement ou trouver la meilleure poudreuse !!
Grâce à eux j’ai eu ma plus profonde session poudreuse !
L’équipe est très sympa et vérifie toujours tous les paramètres afin d’apprécier la session en toute sécurité et dans les meilleures conditions.
Je recommande Niseko Zen sans hésitation !
