Northern "Odyssey Tour"

See where the Onsen water starts!
Excellent Piste, even better off-piste !
Going where nobody else has been!
What a terrific on-snow hotel
Off-piste discovery walks worth it !
We've previously experienced the "Bandai Tour" with Powder Recon a few years ago (then called "Secret Tour"), because we couldn't get a booking on the Northern Odyssey Tour, because it books out months in advance!!....so it was a must do for our Japan 2019 trip. So in February 2019, we spent a week with Powder Recon in Myoko (also see Waz@Oz review under Myoko) before joining Powder Odyssey.....YES....2 trips back to back.
We believe that Powder Recon provide the best value for money / best experience tour you will find. They provide for a cross section of Ages and skier or boarder ability. The Powder Odyssey Tour had the best guides; one was a French Canadian instructor and one a Japanese local telemark champion (thanks Alexi & Hiro....you are legends !!) as well as one of the senior staff of Powder Recon as terrific support (Thanks Dan !!). The Tour accessed local ski-fields around Morioka followed by the terrific Resort at Aomori-Springs. The skiing was excellent; the ski-guiding was first-class with safety at top of mind; the accommodation was terrific with Onsens and great food.
This was my 4th trip with Powder Recon and we are booking with them again for 2020 and beyond .
