Niseko Cat Skiing

Niseko Cat Skiing – The Tour of a Lifetime Awaits.

Niseko cat skiing is the best way to ski and snowboard the world famous Japanese powder in all its untacked glory. Imagine shredding neck deep, super soft Japow run after run and knowing that no one else is going to bomb it all out.

On the day you will be accompanied by a professional photographer who will be there to capture every moment of the excitement for you to take home and showoff to your friends. These images will be delivered to you via our online gallery and they are all in high resolution which means you can print them any size you want. They are also included in the cost so there is no hidden extra charges after your tour.

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

If you join a Niseko cat skiing tour it is just you, your personal guide / photographer, and the 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 and we will treat you to a delicious lunch to help keep your energy levels up.

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. You might want to bring a snorkel when you go Niseko cat skiing because the powder is that deep!

Cat skiing will undoubtedly be a highlight of your time in Niseko and is like no other tour in the region. Niseko cat skiing is an amazing experience and not to be missed on your visit to Hokkaido.
