Unbeaten competencies in deep powder adventures

The Black Diamond Lodge is the ultimate choice for true powder addicts and ski bums who want to get the real Japanese experience! The lodge itself is not fancy, rather basic and hostel-style. Are you a powder hound? You will meet like minded people. This lodge is a hub for an ecletic bunch of passionate riders from all over the world. Therefore the atmosphere is extremely open, friendly and welcoming. Just one of those places intended for good times.

You´ll find a lot of  ski and snowboard travel operators on Hokkaido. But this is the powder specialist among them. The to-date unbeaten competence in deep powder adventures! The owners are real skiers. This is reflected in the refreshing  backcountry packages on the menu. Check for example the „Powder Hunter Trip“ wich is a Powder Road Trip with experienced guides, 4WD and a good music system. Truly, an unrivalled experience. Or do you love pillows? Try the „Mushroom Trip“: In Japan pillows are called mushrooms! Many more packages are available for every level.

Experience the abundant dry snow and the amazing food

Japan and the snow-spoilt north island Hokkaido is a world apart. Forget about waiting for the next dump, it dumps literally every day. It is like skiing on the clouds!

It is a combination of things which brings people back here: The abundant, dry snow, the amazing food and the culture. The culture presents extreme contrasts between traditional and modern. Japan kind of makes you think: They adapted all the new technologies but stick to their very own traditions. Impressive! The japanese spirit is incredibly strong, warm and welcoming. Despite of the catastrophic Tsunami in March 2011, most of Japan can be travelled through safely, especially the north island Hokkaido. Check recent travel recommendations from your government!

5 reasons to choose Black Diamond Tours:

  1. the absolute backcountry specialist!  
  2. melting pot for powder addicts.
  3. super close to the lifts!
  4. professionally run: your trustworthy full-service partner in a land where you might not even be able to read street signs.
  5. a winner: some of the lightest, driest and most consistent powder snow on the planet!

Come over and ski as much dry pow as you can handle. Apres-ski here might be a visit to the oinsens (hot springs) for relaxation, then go out for dinner with sushi, raw fish and lots of veggies. Experience Japan!
