Sherpasride – Rishiri Trip

Japan: Hokkaido

“Take your snow experience in Japan to the next level with Sherpasride, they find you fresh lines and provide an unforgettable cultural experience”

“You and your crew can relax in the warmth of your own house”

The team at Sherpasride believe in creating an experience not just in the snowfields but for your whole duration of the adventure. This means they opt to rent a house that holds up to 12 people rather than put everyone in resorts. In the home, you can cook, laugh and share your powder stories from the day. It’s a beautiful wooden home with little Japanese quirks at every corner.

"Breathtaking views of the ocean while skiing long open runs”

Trips can be tailored for snowboarders or skiers with guides for both. Choose your runs including being able to finish right at the ocean's edge. If you are excited by the idea of exclusive runs, this is the trip for you, as you rarely will run into other groups on your floating mountain paradise that is Rishiri Island. If possible you even are included a trip to the summit one day to be left in awe at the 360 views of ocean, powder and mountains. A sight worth the whole trip itself.

“You will truly be looked after in every sense possible”

From the evening onsen hot baths, you are treated with the guided cuisine tours. They really have thought out the best trip for you, with the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. Using ski mobiles for the first 300m of the trips, help to give you energy for the many days to come, as well as taking you to a different restaurant every night to give you a real cultural experience. Experience guides are there for your safety as well to help improve your technique and skills with full video coaching available too.
