Hokkaido, Japan is the stomping ground for powder poachers from around the world.
Let us take you on an epic journey into
some of the best skiing and snowboarding
Japan has to offer.
Why We Stand Out
We have been in Hokkaido for over 20 years exploring the back country and enjoying the numerous ski resorts on and off piste. The snow here is amazing, more and more powder hunters from around the world are getting in on the action. In 2016, Sherpa Cinema turned up to film ‘Hokkaido Calling’, and of course they call on us for location advice. So, if you want to sample the incredible Hokkaido powder with ease of access, the best lines of descent without the hassles of logistics in the backcountry or off piste we are the right team for you. We know the conditions, the terrain to suit your ability and how to do it safely with a smile Ninja Powder Style!
We are a tight team of powder ski/snowboard guides who loves to share the stoke with you in our winter playground. From experienced ski touring days to learning how to ski backcountry powder, whatever your ability, join us this winter to explore the mountains of Northern Japan, and be part of the Ninja Powder Movement.

Gateway to some of the best snow we’ve ever had
We skied/snowboarded for 2 days with Pat at the beginning of February this year. One day on Asahidake, where he immediately found the best lines and snow we had experienced in Japan up til that moment.
We had an awesome 4 days with Pat exploring different spots with more snow than we could have imagined – plus a dip or two in a local onsen. If you are looking for someone who has the inside track and can guide your group around this winter wonderland – Pat is your guy!
Day Guide Mount Asahidake
Pat guided us around Mt Asahidake for a day. Pat was a great guide and showed us places that we would have never found without him. Asahidake is a definitely a mountain where a good guide is essential.
Best backcountry guide in Furano
We spent 3 days with Pat and can say, hands down he is the best guide in the area! He took us to the deepest, best powder in the area. He was extremely patient as we navigated our skins and back country gear. I would recommend him to anyone coming to the area looking for a local who knows all the best spots and an absolute pleasure to be around!
