Cat Skiing

Cat Skiing – The Tour of a Lifetime Awaits.

Cat skiing is the best way to ski and board perfect untracked powder in Niseko’s backcountry. You will be accompanied by a professional photographer / guide who will be there to capture every moment of the excitement for you to take home and showoff to your friends.

Backcountry cat skiing accesses some of the areas most exciting terrain and the best thing is you don’t have to share it with anyone else!

If you join a cat skiing tour it’s just you, your personal guide and photographer, and a professional cat driver. The tours are steep and deep and limited to five people per cat. All safety equipment is provided if you don’t have your own.

This tour is not for the faint-hearted, it is true backcountry skiing. No cozy day lodges, no popping in for a hot wine (some good hot coffee, though)…..and no lift lines!

Think you have skied all Niseko has to offer…think again! If you’ve never been to Niseko, you don’t know what you are in for. You might want to bring a snorkel the powder is so deep!

Cat skiing will undoubtedly be a highlight of your time in Niseko and is like no other tour in the region.

Cat Skiing is a true back country experience and not to be missed on your visit to Niseko.
