“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
