Snowmobile Tours

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. 

If you have a private group of 4 or less, we may be able to organize a trip for you. 

Hokkaido Backcountry Club offers full-throttle, deep powder Japan snowmobiling for guests of all ability levels. Whether you are looking for a beginner tour or advanced backcountry snowmobiling, and sled-accessed skiing or snowboarding we have you covered.

Our locations are ideal for snowmobiling offering you open, on-and-off track terrain. Group sizes are small (max 4:1 client:guide ratio), and our qualified guides will ensure you have a safe day whether it is your first time or you are a seasoned boondocker.


Hokkaido Backcountry Club guests are covered under our comprehensive insurance policy, but all riders are responsible for any damages caused to the machines. 

Minimum age to ride solo: 12 years old

Minimum age to ride tandem: 5 years old

Hokkaido Backcountry Club 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, and then it’s go time!
