Nisekomoiwa Ski Area, Niseko Hokkaido Prefecture , Japan
The Adventure Project is excited to announce the start of a new ski and snowboard program in Japan this winter. We will be taking several groups of advanced/expert skiers and boarders to the north island of Hokkaido for 2 weeks of riding some of the world’s deepest and driest snow this January.
We will be exploring 3 distinctive zones in Hokkaido that are renowned for their abundant powder: Niseko, Sapporo and the Furano areas. We have our own private transportation and will be hitting up a new resort each day. We have the ability to chase storms and choose the best local resort for the conditions of the day. We can hit up to 11 different resorts in the 2 weeks.
We will be working in small groups, with no more than 6 guests per group with 2 guides leading each group (1 Adventure Project guide and 1 expert local guide). If you want to experience some of the best snow on the earth and experience the distinctive Japanese culture, then this is a trip that shouldn’t be missed.
