Backcountry tours are the best way to learn about Nozawa and surrounding area stashes and our crew of highly experienced international guides will ensure you have an amazing day!

We keep the group sizes small to maximize the riding time and freshies!

It is best if you have a group with ability levels that are relatively close so we can customize the terrain for you!
