Mekunnai Peak Backcountry Tour with NOASC Mekunnai Peak Backcountry Tour with NOASC NOASC Niseko Photography

With repeat guests who go backcountry with NOASC each year, it was a great day to head to Mekunnai Peak with not a cloud in the sky.

With new snowfalls lacking over the last couple of days and the great weather, the snowpack had compacked making the hike up easier and quicker than a normal hike up from Nimi Onsen.

After a 45minute drive from Niseko, it was all go for our hike up to the top of Mekunnai Peak. we weaved our way up through the trees to just above the tree line, into the Alpine zone.

The hike up was gentle, but the slopestyle gully riding on the way down was hard on the legs with washouts, cutbacks, re-entries...you name it. The surprise of the day was some ankle deep powder below tree line on the sheltered slopes.

Call NOASC to book a tour to the top of NISEKO. Tel: 81+.136.23.1688 or send us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
