  • A skier turning in deep powder in Hokkaido Japan. During our week long ski trip to Furano Japan.
  • The fumaroles on Mount Asahidake are right outside the ropeway. During our ski week we attempt to summit and ski from the top passing by the fumaroles is very memorable.
  • Who says Hokkaido is flat? At Guided Exposure we love a;; types of terrain including couloirs filled with blower powder. A great touring area near Furano Japan delivers amazing turns for this snowboarder.
  • From steeps to cruiser runs Japan has something for everyone. From alpine lines to fun forest runs this skier enjoyed every turn along the way in Hokkaido Japan.
  • The downhill is a blast but the uphill gives us time to take in the beauty of Hokkaido Japan. A split boarder skins up through a snowy forest in Furano Japan.
  • An almost daily site this shrine always meant a day of powder was waiting for us on the mountain. A Japanese shrine.
  • Ramen alley in Sapporo is a great stop when traveling to and from Furano. Ramen alley in Sapporo Hokkaido Japan.

   After spending a winter season ski guiding and avalanche forecasting in Hokkaido I look to return with 2 separate groups of 4 in winter 2023. These week long trips will seek out the best snow, in the best places, off the beaten path. Wether its lift served backcountry, ski & splitboard touring, or ski mountaineering this is a trip of a lifetime.

   Our centrally located and beautiful accommodations in the Furano base village of Kitanomine is with in a short 5 minute drive or 10 minute downhill walk from the lifts and a 5 minute drive to Furano-shi. From here we will ride at the local ski area and other zones within an hours drive. From Asahidake in the Daisetsuzan Range to the Hidaka and Yubari Ranges we have plenty of lift served touring and pure human powered backcountry to choose from. While in town we can enjoy dinners at nearby restaurants, shop at the amazing food co-op, and soak in the onsen that surround town.

   A unique offering for 2023 is our carefully crafted overnight ski traverse. This overnight trip goes from ski village to ski village staying in traditional Japanese Ryokans and carrying only a day pack and a couple personal items. No tents, no sleeping bags, just a day pack, a change of clothes and a lunch. As always weather and conditions dependent. 

   This unique trip offers lower ratios of guests to guides with group size limited to 4 people plus guide. Lodging is based on double occupancy and is scheduled for all nights of the trip including the night before we start and the night our trip ends. So time to relax before and after without shuffling luggage, gear, and transportation.
