I have been enjoying the wonders of winter in Sapporo for over 20 years.
Yearly I guide friends and family in the mountains either teaching them cross country skiing or snowboarding. I have been hired privately numerous times over the years teaching people of all ages these various snow maneuvering skills.
Three times I have entered and completed the 11km ski walk in the Sapporo International Ski Marathon held every year.
I have vast knowledge of every trail in the local forests and I am eager to share my knowledge and passion with you.

Marc was very accommodating and made sure to stop for time to take pictures. Location was great. Very secluded but scenery was magnificent.

A great experience if you’re looking for an activity in the snow but don’t know how to do so. A safer and less risky alternative to skiing yet able to bask oneself in the snow!
