POwder tours

This is our 13th winter as a company in Niseko, having skied and ridden every day for over the past decade with many Japanese and international locals and visitors from all over the world.

We provide the best local knowledge for those who want to take advantage of the local experienced professionals who know the international guests' needs and wants, especially when it comes to powder hunting.

You’ll have access to an abundance of hidden powder pockets in-bounds whilst getting yourself orientated with the entire resort/area so you can feel confident navigating some of the difficult trail maps, roped off sections and signage on your powder seeking holiday.

Not limited to just Niseko United, so this is your chance to experience all that this beautiful region has to offer.




With our team's local knowledge and experience, Niseko Sessions can help you organise your day to day activities aside from skiing and snowboarding. Whether it be sampling the Hokkaido region's food and nightlife, organising day trips to other areas or having transport available within the village, we can help tailor your trip to suit your desires.
