Black Diamond Tours: Your Backcountry Guide to The Real Japan
Backcountry guiding in Hokkaido, Japan since 2003. BDT offers the best ski and snowboard guided backcountry tours from single day to multi-day trips.
Black Diamond Tours was started in 1998 with a single guide based out of the Black Diamond Lodge. This quickly grew with the demand to include a roster of world class guides offering lift assisted powder hunting, backcountry tours, and multi-day trips. Meanwhile, the legend of Hokkaido’s powder spread to the world. This pushed us to expand our operation to offer heli, cat, and snowmobiling in private zones for the best powder skiing and snowboarding in Northern Japan.
Now, 18 years later our passion for outdoor adventures is still at the core of Black Diamond Tours. From guided day trips to multi-day Hokkaido tours, mechanized tours, booking accommodations, we create the best guided backcountry tours for any budget.
Starting Summer 2018 we are excited to offer summer trips around Hokkaido including: mountain biking, hiking, wakeboarding, and more.
The 2020 Shimamaki trip dates are up now! This tour gets fully booked by October so don’t miss out on this opportunity!
Let our guides show you the secret backcountry spots around Niseko. No matter which level you ski at we have the right trip for you to get away from the crowds and create your own unique powder memory.
Equipped with Skins, Alpine Touring Skis or Splitboards and your Avalanche Gear you will get out to explore Niseko’s backyard in a different way and earn your untouched powder turns.
