Black Diamond Tours – Japanese Powder Skiing at its Finest
Black Diamond Tours is theÂ specialist for skiing and snowboardingÂ tours to Hakkaido Japan and all of the surrounding resorts. Black Diamond is based at the Niseko ski resort, which isÂ Hokkaido’s biggest and most well known resort.Â This is a great location toÂ base tours toÂ the restÂ of Hokkaido’s best resorts: Rusutsu, Kiroro, Â Sapporo KokusaiÂ and TeineÂ Highland.
Some of the Hakkaido resorts average over 500″ of light, fluffy snow a year. This little powder haven ranks right up there with the major snow resorts like Alta, Snowbird and Grand Targhee for annual snow quantities. Sitting in the mountains right near the coast, cold storms blow down from Siberia and across the Sea of Japan, dropping enormous amounts of snow. These resorts are perfectly placed to catch it all!
Owner Andrew Spragg says, “Whether you prefer long cruising runs, open powderfields, steep chutes, cliffs, hits or gladed skiing your experienced guide will take you to what you’re looking for.” This is a prime reason why many pros like toÂ visit the area and hone their big mountain skiing and snowboarding skills.
A variety of tour packages are available for skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels. Black Diamond has: Guided, Group, Backcountry, Powder and Custom tours available. For backcountry skiing, all the necesarry gear is available to rent and Avalanche Skills Training can be taken as well.
