Benefit from our partners: Black Diamond Tours for human powered Ski Touring, Black Diamond Lodge for your housing in Niseko, and Niseko Auto as your car rental for your road trip around Hokkaido.
Are you looking for the ultimate Japan Ski Adventure? Fortunately, our team from Black Diamond Tours spent years sifting through these resorts and their surrounding slackcountry as well as Hokkaido’s backcountry terrain in search of the best lines, hidden zones, and deepest snow to become known as Hokkaido’s Powder Specialists.
Located in Niseko, Rhythm Summit is the backcountry speciality store. With an emphasis on safety, Rhythm Summit aims to provide backcountry enthusiasts with everything they need to experience the big mountain adventure of their dreams.
Custom boot fitting will also be available, perfect for getting your new alpine touring boots ready to take you beyond the resort boundaries.
COLD WEATHER ESSENTIALS
OYUKI® was born in Niseko, Japan. In winter, Hokkaido is completely covered in snow. Towns are buried by it and locals are forever digging, barely able to keep their cars and properties clear as the snow literally piles up around them. In Japanese ‘OYUKI’ means ‘big snow’, which is our way of reflecting on the unique environment OYUKI® calls home.
When designing and testing our products in Niseko’s harsh winter environment we have one purpose in mind. To keep fellow riders on the mountain longer, smashing pow in absolute comfort.
In 2012 Weston Snowboards chose the small Colorado mountain community of Minturn to serve as our home base. Our front door is within shouting distance of Vail’s legendary side country run, “The Minturn Mile”. Being in the mountains is not only good for our soul, it gives us a unique connection to the riders we serve. Every day provides our team a special opportunity to listen, respond and participate with a community of riders that love being outside. Our hope is to create products that enable people to experience nature in a way that changes them forever.
