Intro to Sledding - ¥12,960 per person
This Intro tour (60 minutes, min. 3 guests) is perfect for families, beginners and intermediates. HBC's friendly guides will have you learning the basics on an oval track, before taking to the hills for adventure. We will travel on snow covered roads, through farmlands and rolling powder fields.
Deep Pow Short - ¥19,250 per person
The deep powder short tour (90 minutes, min. 2 guests) is as easy or as challenging as you would like it to be! Enjoy our mix of open fields and varied tree runs as we teach you how to catch air, "boondock," and hill climb safely. This could possibly be the most exciting hour you will have this winter in Japan!
Backcountry Sled Tours - ¥35,000 per person
