Det skal I lave

This tour focuses on exploring the hidden powder stashes of Kagura ski resort. We will use regular lifts to go up the mountain and then ski the back bowls and trees. No mountaineering experience or equipment is necessary and we will not be going to any avalanche prone areas. Kagura is famous for being lenient about "crossing the ropes" and skiing out of bounds and we will be taking full advantage of this policy. The only "on piste" we will do will be to access the side country or get to the lifts. The rest of the time we will be sliding in the pow looking for some fresh tracks! This experience is subject to the weather conditions and may be canceled or rescheduled according to the weather. When fresh snow is forecast around your scheduled experience I will do my best to contact you and let you know about the upcoming "pow day." While any day can be a great day in the side country, "pow days" are very special and not to be missed if possible!
Other things to note
Guests need to be intermediate or advanced skiers or snowboarders and in good health. Having powder snow appropriate gear is recommended but not necessary.

Deep powder snow is my passion. I moved to Japan twenty five years ago and have made the mountains around Yuzawa my personal playground for over a decade. I taught my two boys to ski/snowboard as soon as they could walk and my family and I spend as much time as possible seeking out the powder stashes in the resorts and backcountry around our home deep in the mountains of Yuzawa.

Gabriel is a very nice guy. He brings me to the great off-piste area in Kagura. And he knows which off-piste area is most suitable for me. Also, he teaches me some special skills about riding in the powder area. It is an incredible experience for me. I would definitely repeat the experience again, if I’m back to Kagura.

Gabriel was an excellent guide. He provided me a great off piste experience in Kagura. He knows the terrain and the surroundings very well and made me feel comfortable and safe during the entire time. He’s also fun to spend time with and he even recommended me some spots to go in the area. I would definitely repeat the experience again, if I’m back to Kagura.

Like most things, if you want the best it's better to do it with a local - especially a local powder-fiend ;) Right from the start Gabriel was on-time, on-point, and just good to hang out with, knowing when and which spots to hit. We headed straight up and were soon pounding across big bowls and cruisy trees full of beautiful, dry powder....on and on. As it said in the description, it's not a beginner's day out but if you're ok with a short walk to some lines you'll be rewarded with beautiful views, big, soft turns and a face full of powder. I went on a weekday after a couple of days of decent snow and it's amazing there's somewhere like Kagura so accessible from Tokyo, and being with Gabe just takes it to another level.

With its incredibly accessible side and back country Kagura maybe Japan‘s best kept secret. Whether you are a powder padwan looking to be a Jedi or a full on full-time Powderhound sniffing around for the steepest and deepest Gabe’s your man. you won’t believe how close and easy some of the best powder experiences you will ever have are. I used to do groomers But since I met Gabe it’s strictly “just the back and sides please” for me.
