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.

Several of Hakuba’s resorts have excellent side-country access where you can get the best taste possible of Hakuba Off Piste. Access the goods with the lift services of the resorts and then ride the excellent “side-country” terrain. Go with the knowledge and expertise of local professional ski & split-board guides into the best steep powder stashes in Japan…right here in Hakuba!

Intro To Freeride – By Evergreen Alpine Academy

Sometimes all you need to do is take a few steps from the ‘well worn path’ to find the terrain that you came to Japan for. But where to start? It can be confusing to understand exactly where you are allowed to go and what to do in Off Piste terrain if something goes wrong. That’s where we come in. We have all the ski resorts in the Hakuba Valley wired, you will be able to challenge yourself on terrain that is accessed by ski lifts, and our Guides will create an itinerary of runs for you that are like a stepping stone for those wanting to adventure beyond the groomers and start making the most of the incredible Japan powder skiing on offer.

Advanced Off Piste

If you’ve skied a lot of off piste and side country terrain but prefer to ride the lifts to get more vertical in your day, then this is the program for you. We ride hard, covering lots of terrain with exciting features and technical entries. At times we might even go for a short 20 minute hike to access a hidden face of fresh Japan powder skiing. This program suits riders who can confidently navigate dense trees, big fluffy moguls open creek beds and fast narrow exit trails.

We set you up with all the safety gear needed and your Guide will take care of the itinerary, all you have to do is show up and shred!
