Guided Photographic Tours Rusutsu

These Rusutsu tours are not a typical guided ski tour. The aim is to access the best conditions on the day to get great photographs of you and your group.

They are for PRIVATE GROUPS only i.e. you cannot join a group, so the full cost for the full day is applicable to you whether you are a solo skier/boarder or a group of up to 5.

All tours include a full day of guiding (6 hours plus breaks) to the best terrain based on your experience level and the day’s snow and weather conditions. Transport to and from your accommodation can also be provided, whether you're staying at Rusutsu or at nearby Niseko.

Your guide is a professional photographer who will capture epic photos of the day, including snow action shots.

All images are professionally edited and delivered to you via a Google Drive link, where you can view and download at your convenience.

Take the guesswork out of where to ski and ride at Rusutsu. Your guide knows where to go and when… to find the best snow and terrain on any given day… even on crowded ones.

Sea And Summit Media is experienced in guiding and shooting skiers and riders of any skill level. Be it the best groomers in the resort, the famous Rusutsu tree skiing, off-piste powder, or into the lift-accessed backcountry (avalanche gear and helmet required).

Incredible snow… the best zones… epic shots.
