Here's the deal...

We've once again partnered with Whitecap Alpine and their expert ACMG guides to embark on another amazing backcountry ski vacation to Hakuba, Japan. Our team is committed to helping you achieve your backcountry goals. Not only will we take you to the best lines in the Hakuba backcountry, but we also have the scoop on the best ramen, sushi, and hot springs in town.

This is what we are going to do:

  • Improve our pow slashing and technical abilities with Girls Do Ski founder and professional skier, Leah Evans, as our personal coach.

  • Use lifts to access the backcountry and improve our ski touring techniques as we travel to the magical powder stashes with a private ACMG guide leading the way.

  • Enjoy the intimate setting of our private, luxurious ski-in-ski-out Japanese chalet while our personal 4wd van waits outside, ready for powder chasing adventures.

  • Soak in relaxing onsens, eat delicious food, immerse ourselves in Japanese culture and make lasting memories.

  • Share the love of free skiing with special guests from the local Hakuba ski community.

  • Make connections with a small group of five other positive, adventurous, like-minded women.

Getting there

As airfare is not included in our package, we will let you book flights that work for you. We can help arrange a shuttle ($165) for you once you land that will take you to Hakuba. It will take about 5 hours to drive to our private chalet, so you will have time to take in the sights or catch up on some sleep.
