Hokkaido, Japan

Hotsprings in Japan

Imagine skiing perfect powder, eating the freshest sushi, and then relaxing in a natural hot spring…now go do it! Colorado Mountain School offers a unique opportunity to ski in Japan with our guide Norie Kizaki. Norie can show you the best tours and powder in Hokkaido and translate the language for you with ease.

Japan Powder

Many skiers boast that Hokkaido has the best powder in the world. Japan catches cold, moisture-rich air from Siberia that unloads meters of the fluffy white stuff. Come experience the joy of skiing live volcanoes, a combination of alpine and tree skiing with verticals of 500 to 900 meters, bathing in thermal hot springs and tasting local Japanese cuisine, all with a native guide!
