Today's tour was difficult because of the variable weather conditions, and heavy powder snow. Even so, our guests from Idaho USA were all smiles at the end of the day. Low cloud and wet snow made our route planning more important than normal. After a hike up it was the start to unexpected good turns for the rest of the day.

Spring is here Even with Srping upon us, there are still lots of untracked in the Niseko Backcountry. Today the peak gates didn't open, but one of the side gates opened. After a lengthy traverse and a quick check of the snowpack we started our first descent below treeline of the side country from Grand Hirafu ski Resort. Lifts will run until the 1st week of May, so still lots of time to enjoy backcountry touring in the Niseko mountain ranges. Call NOASC to talk to our friendly staff about your next tour.

With just a dusting of new snow over the last couple of days in the village, skiing conditions have meant groomers are the place to be. That wasn't the case in the Niseko Backcountry, further up in elevation and within the untouched trees of Mt Yotei. Backcountry Guiding since 1993. Call NOASC to enjoy your spring backcountry tour when visiting Niseko. Tel:0136-23-1688

With repeat guests who go backcountry with NOASC each year, it was another great day and reason to head back to Mekunnai Peak today. 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, and then into the Alpine zone. With the sun still shining, it was long wide-open turns all the way down today!!! Call NOASC to book a tour to the top of NISEKO.
