We are now offering custom trip options for the SASS Japan 2018 season. Although our sessions are specifically designed to maximize pow days and create the experience for which we are known, you may be looking for dates that fall outside of our session blocks, additional locations, more of a private experience, day guiding without the rest of the package or even more cultural excursions. We are here to build the perfect trip for you…

We can offer custom guided options for families, groups, couples and more. Explore recommended options below, or simply INQUIRE NOW and let us know what you are thinking.


  • December 30th – January 5th
  • January 27th – February 17th

Looking to design your own JAPOW experience? We can build an unreal trip anytime between the above dates. Let us know what you are looking for and we will help to put the pieces together. We have been bouncing around Hokkaido for a while now and have a ton of great ideas for ways to explore the limitless pow all over the island.
