The year of the CAT

Lose the crowds and get the deepest snow in Hokkaido

Cat skiing around the world is often perceived as an activity reserved for the uber hard core skier but, with a range of options in Niseko this year, you will be thrilled to learn that there is something for almost everybody from the champagne sipping intermediate, to the powder crazed ski bum looking for the steepest and deepest lines that the area has to offer.

If you have had the pleasure of skiing in Niseko then you will know that snow (and lots of it) is never a problem, but with the increase in demand over the past few years, especially in peak season, finding fresh lines after 11am can sometimes be a challenge.

The biggest advantage to Cat Skiing is that you are guarenteed untouched, fresh, deep powder all day long as well as the freedom of your own private mountain with no one competing for the snow - except of course your new found friends on the Cat.

There are Cat tours to suit all from the more chilled, intermediate Weiss Mountain Cat Tour which includes access to an abandoned ski resort and a sit down lunch to a full day of heart pumping, deep powder, tree runs on a private concession with Big Wave Cat to a few over night Cat Ski Tour options offering a bigger mountain experience and a bit more adventure.

With a price tag ranging from JPY39,000 to JPY150,000, Cat Skiing offers the only way to guarentee the best snow in Niseko and worth every penny.
