This tour focuses on exploring the hidden powder stashes of Kagura ski resort. We will use regular lifts to go up the mountain and then ski the back bowls and trees. No mountaineering experience or equipment is necessary and we will not be going to any avalanche prone areas. Kagura is famous for being lenient about "crossing the ropes" and skiing out of bounds and we will be taking full advantage of this policy. The only "on piste" we will do will be to access the side country or get to the lifts. The rest of the time we will be sliding in the pow looking for some fresh tracks! This experience is subject to the weather conditions and may be canceled or rescheduled according to the weather. When fresh snow is forecast around your scheduled experience I will do my best to contact you and let you know about the upcoming "pow day." While any day can be a great day in the side country, "pow days" are very special and not to be missed if possible!
Deep powder snow is my passion. I moved to Japan twenty five years ago and have made the mountains around Yuzawa my personal playground for over a decade. I taught my two boys to ski/snowboard as soon as they could walk and my family and I spend as much time as possible seeking out the powder stashes in the resorts and backcountry around our home deep in the mountains of Yuzawa.
Essentially you will learn all the best side country pow stashes at Kagura. We will divide our time between the High Speed Quad at the top of Kagura and Romance Lift No. 5 at the peak.
