Backcountry Sled Tours
￥35,000 per Person + fuel
For the 2017-18 season, we are taking a break from group snowmobile tours in order to focus on improving our other guiding and mechanized ski programs.
On our Backcountry snowmobile tours you will spend the day in some incredible mountain zones learning to handle your machine in deep untracked Hokkaido powder. Our experienced guides will make sure that you learn and challenge yourself the safest way possible. There are no groomed trails and no easy ways out. You will be worked to exhaustion, and you will love every minute of it.
This terrain varies depending on avalanche conditions and the groups overall desires. Options typically include perfectly spaced trees, open glades, powder fields, and hill climbs.
HBC guests are covered under our comprehensive insurance policy, but all riders are responsible for any damages caused to the machines.
Minimum riders required: 2
Maximum riders allowed: 4
HBC snowmobile guides start every tour with a safety talk, including a basic intro to the machine and overview of important hand signals. We then follow with a few warm up laps under close supervision before heading out to shred in the hills!
