Freeride holiday combined with splitboarding/ skitouring

Due to the cold air from Siberia and the moisture from the Sea of Japan Hokkaido is one of the snowiest places on earth. Some areas on the island are claiming an average of 25 meters snowfall per winter. The most snow falls in the period from half January until mid February. During these holidays we ride less known and therefore less crowded ski areas. From my own experince these areas belong to the best freerinding areas of Hokaido.

Among others we ride in the ski areas which are known for the driest powder of the island. All in all we explore up to 6 different areas, thus we get to know Hokaido from diffrent viewpoints and immerse into japanese culture through onsons, sushi and much more. During our holiday we stay in typical japanese mid class accomdations.

Impression of our Japan Freeride holiday of 2020:

At the end of our first day freeriding we hiked up in the moonlight for one extra powder run! With a view of the illuminated ski slopes of Rusutsu.

The second day we hiked the Mt. Shiribetsu, not an easy mountain to start with but worth the effort for a perfect powder run and an impressive view of Mt Yotei. The Vulcano Mt. Yotei dominates the skyline of the Niseko Valley and is one of the highest peaks in Hokkaido with almost 2000 meters.


From the peak, the view of the unmistakable MT Yotei.

Japanese food……. a bit special but very, very good

Sapporo sightseeing, a city with two million inhabitants.


Thanks for waching!

Enjoy life, keep on freeriding.
