Niseko Freeride Tour

Most people have heard of Niseko and there’s good reason for that. This North-island powder magnet scores an average of 15 metres of cold dry powder each season. Niseko is a well-developed international ski resort, boasting an enormous amount of terrain and lift infrastructure to match. The village is hands down the best and liveliest in all of Japan with numerous restaurants, bars and shops all within walking distance.

This region also plays host to some quieter, and just as snowy resorts, which we take advantage of on this tour. Rusutsu, Moiwa, Kokusai, Teine, Tenguyama and Kiroro (to mention a few) are all located close by and score similar, and sometimes even more, snow than Niseko.

The Niseko Freeride Tour is fully guided and hosted by a Mint Tours guide. The guides are passionate about riding deep, dry snow and aim to get you the best and deepest turns you’ve ever had!
