"Night skiing at Grand Hirafu in Japan's freshest powder"

Every passionate skier or snowboarder needs to shred Japan at least once in their life. Make sure you do it properly by coming on a SASS trip. The driest, fluffiest, freshest powder will welcome you with eager eyes as you take full advantage of the absurd January snow fall known as “Japanuary”. You will be able to push your skiing or riding to the next level with small groups sizes – never exceeding a 5:1 ratio and leading coaches or guides. No day will be the same with vast options available to you; hike the peak at Niseko United, go night skiing at Grand Hirafu, ride steep chutes at Tiene or smash through pillow lines at Rusutsu are just a few of the possibilities. SASS don’t follow the horde, they hunt for rewards. With backcountry touring options, they focus on off-piste and accessible backcountry away from the crowds.
