Cold temperatures and snowcapped peaks mean it is time for more winter
outdoor recreation in the Japan North Alps. These amazingly jagged
and steep peaks are comparable in terms of beauty and diversity to
any major mountain range in the world. These mountains on average
receive over 10 meters of accumulated snowfall between December and
April. They stand just a little under 3,000m with their alpine zone
starting at around 2,000m giving way to huge wide open bowls of deep
powder. Evergreen continues to explore new areas deeper and further
afield but find ourselves returning year after year to ride awesome
powder on familiar lines on the numerous ski hills in the area. Allow
Evergreen’s professional staff to guide you to the very best areas
in the backcountry and on the resorts. Whether you are an experienced
veteran in the backcountry or are testing the slopes for the first
time. We guarantee you will have a magical experience in the snow
covered mountains of Japan.
Even if you are not a skier or boarder, come explore Hakuba’s winter
landscape by snowshoe or try cross country skiing on the 1998 Winter
Olympic Nordic course or other special areas in the valley. Definitely
one of the best things about a day out in the mountains is returning
to relax and soak in an outdoor hotspring as snowflakes fall all around.
Evergreen also has some new and exciting programs this winter. Our
new ‘First Tracks’ Powder Clinics will get you the early morning fresh
powder lines of the day with tips and techniques from a knowledgeable
instructor. Children will also have a ball in our newly designed Kids
Camps and Daycare service. We have tons of fun-filled activities for
playing indoors and out. For those interested in improving their ski
or boarding ability why not join in a lesson with our qualified instructors
from around the world. We offer lessons for young children through
to the young at heart, from beginner to expert.
No matter what your ability or desired activity, Evergreen can set
up a memorable winter get-away for you and your group. See you in
the Japan Alps.
