Day 1: Upon arrival at New Chitose Airport (Sapporo’s International Airport) you will be driven to your hotel in the heart of Sapporo. You can then take a gentle stroll around the city to stretch your legs after the long journey. This first day will allow you to rest and recover, as well to start exploring this fascinating city. (See our FAQ section for “Why stay in Sapporo and not in a ski resort?)”

Day 2: You will be so stoked by the sheer amount of snow that you will not want to rest for long! You will be picked up from your hotel in the morning and taken to the nearby snowy mountains (we will pick the best resort based on snow conditions – we want you to experience the deepest powder around! See Details of Sapporo ski resorts section for a list of the resorts to be visited) Your experienced guide will help you find the freshest, deepest tracks for some memorable shredding. Depending on your ski/snowboard level and your needs, your mountain guide will show you around the resort slopes, help you through your first deep powder snow experience, take you to the best untracked side-country routes for you to get maximum enjoyment out of the incredible snow and terrain, or simply be a fun freeride partner to share all the good times in the snow together. See the SPA Frequently Asked Questions section for more information on skiing ability, guiding etc.
After an ecstatic day on the hill you will be driven back to Sapporo, before enjoying Skilas’ famous Welcome Dinner: a huge feast of tasty fresh local specialities (seafood, sushi, noodles, tempura etc.) washed down with unlimited drinks. That night could be a good time to explore Sapporo’s bustling nightlife – but not too late as there is plenty more powder to enjoy the next day!

Days 3-12: A further nine incredible days of deep powder skiing awaits you! We will take you to the best ski resorts around Sapporo (4 or 5 different resorts depending on conditions and group preferences) to enjoy the super-deep, silky smooth products on offer in this magical land. Your guide will help you get the most out of the mountains by showing you all the best lines and taking you to his favourite secret powder stashes. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy the Japanese hot springs (onsen) if you want to try this traditional Japanese pastime! In between all this action you also get a well deserved rest day which allows you to explore Sapporo City.

Day 13: The last day in Sapporo provides you with several options:

1) Rest your hard-working powder legs and relax in the city;

2) Keep powering through with another ski day in the powder – we do warn you in advance that it gets highly addictive! (additional charge to be paid locally);

3) Do some sightseeing or shopping (additional charge to be paid locally).

Day 14: Unfortunately your time in Japan is coming to an end… After a final night back in Sapporo, you will be transferred back to New Chitose Airport for your flight home – taking some incredible memories, photos and videos away with you.
