Sherpasride – Road Trip Hokkaido

Japan: Hokkaido

Let us show you Hokkaido, visiting the best ski touring destinations in Japan and finding that bottomless powder that is world famous.

"Find the driest snow on earth"

An average of 16 metres of light and dry snow guarantees endless options to find the deepest snow of your life. Hokkaido has some unique experiences such as night skiing in flood lit resorts and skiing into the mighty Mt Yotei's volcano crater.

For the more adventurous skier or snowboarder who wants more touring access then we offer the Hokkaido Road Trip package where you get to explore m ore of Hokkaido via car. The first 5 mountain days are spent around the backcountry in our home base in Kutchan, including an optional ski tour up Mt Yotei.

"Access advanced and secret terrain"

On the 7th day we drive to Furano in the Central Hokkaido region to spend 3 days accessing some of the more steeper terrain in Japan and some of the lesser known resorts such as Kamui. There is always something to do in the evenings, wether its night skiing, enjoying the fine Japanese food or getting involved in the legendary karaoke scene, we will create an experience you will never forget. Don't want to bring your gear on the plane? We have a range of ski's, snowboard's, touring gear and avalanche equipment that is free for you to use.
