Introductory Tour 8500yen (1hr)
Never been on a snowmobile before? No problem! The Intro Tour is perfect for families, beginners and intermediates. Utilizing smaller, easier to handle 400cc Yamaha snowmobiles makes this trip more enjoyable and less physically demanding, yet still delivers plenty of speed and power. This one hour tour will have you starting out by learning the basics or brushing up on your skills on a large oval track for about 10 mins until we take to the hills! We will travel through several snow covered roads, farm lands and rolling powder fields stopping only briefly for a photo opportunity and hot cup of Japanese tea half way through the trip.
This tour offers the ability for two people to share a sled, please ask us at time of booking. The second rider cost is 6500yen.
**Private tour requires a minimum of 4 persons
Deep Powder Tour 10500yen (1hr)
Are you ready for the next level? The Deep Powder Short Tour is a physically demanding, high adrenaline trip that is suited for riders who are able to manhandle, lift and/or help pull out a 230kg sled. This is your chance to experience a whole new "white room" atop one of our 140 horsepower 500-800cc powder specific snow beasts. The Deep Powder Tour starts off with a short powder intro and warm-up to get a feel of your sled followed by a brief 5 min lesson. We'll show you how to make turns, handle bumps, and small jumps and drops...then it's go time! This may possibly be the most intense 40 mins of legal fun you will have this winter in Japan! Think you got what it takes?
The Intro Tour and the Deep Powder Short Tour are 1 hour in length with 20 minutes spent suiting up and receiving safety instructions followed by 40 minutes of riding time.
