Nozawa backcountry tours

Nozawa's ONLY English backcountry guide service!

Make the most of your powder time at Nozawa by hiring a professional mountain guide to safely guide you around Nozawa's backcountry.
BC tours are the best way to learn about Nozawa and surrounding area stashes and our crew of highly experienced international guides will ensure you have an amazing day!

We keep the group sizes small to maximize the riding time and freshies! It is best if you have a group with ability levels that are relatively close so we can customize the terrain for you.

If you like exploring then make the most of your time by booking multiple days and we can show you around some of the hidden gems at other nearby resorts. (Other resort trips only available for those booking more than 1 day of tours.)
Head guide
Tsunehisa Teshima A.K.A. Tessy: HEAD GUIDE
Nationality:Japan
JMGA ski guide, Japan Avalanche Network Level 1, WMAJ Wilderness First Responder, CIC A. guide

Tessy is our Japanese mountain man. Everyday throughout the winter he is either out exploring new mountains and routes or teaching mountain safety and avalanche courses. He loves splitboarding and is a keen mountain photographer. He is a bit of a gear freak so if you want a review about gear Tessy has probably used it before.
