Hakuba Off-Piste Guiding

There are quite a few resorts in the Hakuba valley that have absolutely amazing off-piste terrain right from the sides and tops of the ski areas.

If you are looking for an exciting day of skiing and snowboarding in off-piste zones that require little to no hiking to access, then this is the tour for you. We will find the best resort to head to on your tour day and guide you into super fun and playful slopes and get right into some of that legendary Japanese snow! When the snow falls in Hakuba, the off-piste areas are the place to head to. With your experienced guide to lead you safely you’ll be treated to some epic turns off the resorts.

What to Bring: You won’t need any touring skis, split boards or snowshoes for this tour, however the essential avalanche rescue gear of beacon, probe , shovel and a backpack is required. We can assist with rentals if needed.

"Best days out EVER! I’ve been skiing the backcountry of Hakuba with James for 10 years now. He is my definitely my guide of choice for a safe and fun day skiing. His deep local knowledge of the terrain and astute study of the weather and snowpack mean that we get the best days out possible. James’s extensive experience in the backcountry and his technical mountaineering skills always gives me and my family a sense of comfort knowing we are in good hands when we are far from civilisation. I cannot recommend highly enough a day in the backcountry with James."Chris Scott, Australia
