JAPAN BACKCOUNTRY ADVICE PLEASE

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi there,

My brother (Skier) and I (Snowboarder) will be visiting Japan at the end of Feb for approx 5/6 days of mountain time.

I'm currently researching options and could do with some advice.

Ideally we'd like to visit a spot which offers good challenging off piste (we'll be hiring guides). If theres a heli or cat option even better ($ permitting).
We're confident riders and after a more traditional vibe. Not bothered about partying.


Can anyone recommend the best spots for this type of trip? Has anyone got a tour company they could recommend? Any decent budget/mid range accommodation?
Do we stay on the main island or head north?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

@BLC1982, welcome to Snowheads! May I suggest you try the search function - you’ll find a wealth of information on this topic.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@BLC1982, As suggested above there are many Japan based threads on here.

If you are really starting from scratch, you may have left it a little late for some areas. When I first went to Japan I started on the Powder Hounds website, and contacted a tour operator from there. I’ve been with Whiteroom Tours for the the last 2 years, and will be going with them again in Feb.

Black diamond tours - probably already booked up but top quality guides.
