Off Piste Ski & Snowboard Tours

Japan Powder Skiing At It’s Best

You’ve seen the Japan powder skiing / off piste / backcountry videos and gotten stoked, and Hakuba gets huge snowfalls, but with the keen local skiers and riders lined up first thing in the morning after a big dump the resorts get tracked out pretty fast, unless you know where to find the “secret stashes”. Join a tour with Evergreen’s experienced guides and smash powder like a local.
