Questions you may have

What airport do I fly into? 

The main airport for international flights to Hokkaido is Chitose/Sapporo. For our North American guests, flights will land in Narita or Haneda airports (Tokyo), layovers typically are 90 minutes or so, and then the 2 hour flight to shin-Chitose. 

What’s the weather like? 

In the month of January, frigid Siberian winds sweep over the Sea of Japan, collecting abundant moisture as they advance inland, resulting in the renowned phenomenon known as Japow. Temperatures in Niseko tend to be in between -5 to -15 degrees celcius (23 to 5 degrees fahrenheit).

Sunshine makes infrequent appearances, making it advisable to opt for goggles with yellow, rose, or clear lenses. It's prudent to have an extra pair on hand as a contingency. Additionally, we strongly advise the use of a face mask or a neck warmer/buff to stay well-protected from the elements.

What should my ability be? 

We suggest that you be able to confidently ride BLUE and BLACK terrain.

Powder experience is not necessary however, if this is the case, we highly suggest you start not skipping leg day in the gym.

What board should I bring? 

We suggest bringing your favorite powder/freeride board to float on the deepest powder snow in Niseko. If you only have a park twin board, you will still be able to ride, however, a directional freeride board will enhance your over-all powder experience.

What if I have dietary restrictions?

After purchasing a spot on the tour, you will be sent a google form sheet which has a section for you to fill out any dietary restrictions you may have.

We will do our best to accommodate your needs however, this cannot be guaranteed.

What if I have an EPIC or IKON pass?

We suggest to get your FREE Day Passes with the partner resorts if you have an EPIC or IKON pass.

If you have a pass that covers days of riding at any of these following resorts - NISEKO UNITED, MOIWA or RUSUTSU - we will refund the cost of the lift tickets if you choose to use the days provided on your Epic or Ikon Pass.
