Backcountry Tour with Adam from Ride Shiga

Alex

Great tour from Adam of the backcountry in Shiga Kogen. We went on a really warm day after several warm days, so the snow quality wasn't great, but Adam still found us a good spot to do some avalanche safety training and we got some awesome views!

First time trying touring out and we had a blast, we will definitely be back (I will bring a splitboard this time!). 10/10 would recommend!

I was an absolute beginner! At the ripe old age of 51 I was very apprehensive on my first day of lessons. My instructor, Will put my mind at ease immediately. Over 4 days he taught me so much and I felt safe the whole time. I also had a lesson with Riccardo. I look forward to returning to lessons with both of these instructors next year! Claire was also brilliant sorting out all the logistics!

Best Powder of my Life

Scott

Our powder tour with Adam was by far the best resort boarding experience of our lives. Shiga Kogen delivered a huge dump of snow which made the whole mountain amazing to ride but having a guide kept us getting the freshest lines all day. We were also shown some secret areas that we were able to enjoy our following days.

Highly recommended!

Had a great ride with Rafal. I am moving into powder riding and he gave great instructions to improve my riding within the 3 hours I had. First time in the trees, and he enabled me to be comfortable to ride there and we had an amazing ride in free terrain after a small hike. Next time in shigakogen I will book several sessions with Ride Shiga

Adam is amazing. Been riding for 2-3 season and had to pretty much re-learn from scratch to get rid of bad habits. The lessons were also fun and Adam is very knowledgeable with the mountain which makes him a very good tour guide to show you all the good runs if you're there for the first time. Was fun and will do it again if im there.

Great guide who knows the area

16/03/2023
I had 2 days guiding with Rafal at beginning of March 2023
RAF was able to get me into some great snow among the side country of one of the Shiga areas as well as some awesome back country off the back of Japans highest lift point with great views and a really easy skin back out
Would definitely recommend hooking up with these guys which I will be doing on future trips to Shiga Kogan

It is a wonderful ski-school. Rafal and Adam are very responsive and helpful. All my questions and enquiries are handled and replied timely. They also provided many suggestions/recommendations to us before and after our lesson.
Rafal took care of each of us closely, especially it was the first time skiing for my wife. My wife enjoyed her first time ski with guidance by Rafal. She can basically ski after our private class. It is amazing. And she asked my to bring her skiing again next year. I will give a big credit to Rafal.

Chris Collier

Superb, friendly atmosphere, excellent instruction and infinite patience and encouragement from Rafal. I would highly recommend Ride Shiga. We were all novice level skiers but we all improved our skills. Tha level of service was excellent too. We were picked up from our hotel in Shibu Onsen and taken to the slopes that best suited our abilities, so not too busy or crowded.
I have been involved in training, coaching and instructing for over 30 years so I can safely say that you will get excellent coaching with Ride Shiga. Thank you Rafal and Adam.

Thanks for Rafal for giving a wonderful private 4-hr lesson. We had a great fun as ski beginners. He is nice and kind in teaching, we picked up the basic going straight, stop, and control the speed of skiing. We also learned the turning. Although the weather on that day is kind of stormy and snowy, we really had fun on the Shiga Kogen.
