Join Black Diamond Tours for the Ultimate Ski Adventure
With an average annual snowfall of 15 meters and over 100 ski resorts, its clear why Hokkaido is quickly becoming one of the hottest ski destinations in the world. Fortunately, we’ve spent years sifting through these resorts and their surrounding backcountry terrain in search of the best lines, hidden zones and deepest snow to become known as Hokkaido’s Powder Specialists. If you’ve only got a limited amount of time on the island, signing up for a Black Diamond Tour is the best way to guarantee yourself the freshest tracks.
Start your new year with a POW! A great value and start to your year. Not only do you get some incredible cat skiing but we will take you our secret early season zones! Walking will be kept at a minimum with a focus on maximizing your vertical.
Black Diamonds sister company, Hokkaido Backcountry Club, runs daily heli trips to the 1,107 meter Shiribetsu-Dake volcano, famous for fresh powder lines and steep ridges covered in beautiful birch forest.
