Snowboarding and Skiing in Japan

Japan is to powder what Narosa is to waves.


The far eastern location of Japan was chosen as it has daily snowfall like the daily waves of Dunfanaghy. Both locations are equally unique in their natural resource, snow and surf.


After many winters Duncan has developed a unique guided tour program to let you experience the best Japan has to offer in its unique culture, cuisine and approach to the mountains

Due to its unique island geography the weather in Hokkaido is very changeable and requires extensive local knowledge and understanding of the weather systems. Equally at home on a snowboard or skis Duncan will take you to the best resorts, lines and restaurants. 


Enjoy a day of backcountry skiing/snowboarding in Hokkaido.


Based on the forecast and your needs, the day will be customised to maximize powder time the way you like to ride it.


Options range from: Lift assisted slackcountry, lift assisted backcountry, lift assisted touring and full touring.
