Deep Pow Short Tours

¥19,250 per Person

For the 2020-21 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. 

The Deep Pow Short Snowmobiling Tour is as a 90-minute session that is as easy or as challenging as you would like it to be! Enjoy our mix of open fields and well spaced trees as we teach you how to catch air, boondock, and hill climb safely. This could possibly be the most exciting hour you will have this winter in Japan!


This terrain varies depending on the groups overall desires and skill level. Options typically include steep hills, open glades, and deep powder fields.


Hokkaido Backcountry Club 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: 5

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 before heading out to shred in the hills!
