Awesome powder tour - more climbing/hiking would have been nice

Markus08/03/2018
Pick up and everthing worked quite great. Full Note accomodation and beds have been a bit rough and noisy, especially considering the price of the tour. The organisation and pickup in the morning worked perfect and Lexi always had some good areas proposed. She showed us all the sweet sports of the specific areas and was knowledgeable regarding safety etc. However, I would have exptected more real backcountry Snowboarding, including some Hiking etc. - Basically she showed us where to go and that was it. Next time I will come on my own and ride the same spots without a guide, as they all seemed to be easyly accessible. I even opted out of the guiding for 1 or 2 days, just to have a good fast day of riding powder, without waiting for slow group members.
All in all it was a great experience, but for my skill level a little bit too low (more backcountry) and therefore too expensive. But it was worth the money, just to have some riding companions, as I would have been alone otherwise. :) Powder was awesome and got better every single day :)))

Fun, safe, consistently guiding me to untouched powder!

I loved Whiteroom Tours. They are clearly a safe guiding company, looking at avalanche dangers and guiding us to untouched stashes of powder all over the resorts. The fact that we were able to visit 6 different resorts in 8 days was such a treat. The guides were fun and were so kind in spending time with us some evenings, or helping recommend good places to eat or drink when we were on our own. They did a fantastic job of making sure everyone was happy and satisfied with the ski ability of the group. I would definitely recommend Whiteroom Tours to anyone! I'm hoping to go again with them myself!

Keith our guide was fantastic, he was very familiar with all the resorts that we went to and the guides selected well by following the snow conditions. This enabled us to ski runs that had good snow and runs we would not have skied off piste without a guide.

My only criticisms were the accommodation at Pension Full Note was very basic but was in a very convenient position in town. Secondly that we had skiers and boarders mixed in our group, luckily it was a small group but it would have been more enjoyable with all skiers.

The accommodation in Otaru was very good. A great trip if you are skiing on your own.

Awesome

This awesome tour was the best of all worlds. Staying at Niseko for a lot of the time so going out to the bars, yet getting to ski at the other ski resorts where there were significantly less crowds. I loved Otaru too because it was so different to Niseko and felt much more Japanese.

I was so appreciative to have the guides. I never would have found all that powder without them.

The lodging at Niseko was simple and friendly and just what I expected considering the tour was pretty cheap.
