Myoko Ski Guide information
Historically, Powder Recon has only provided guided tours for their own clients as part of their accommodation and lift pass packages. As from winter 2017 Powder Recon now runs daily guided tours for walk in groups. Guided day trips can be arranged at the Powder Recon office building and include pickup and transfer for you and your friends via your very own private 4WD van to one of the many neighbouring resorts around Myoko Kogen. Contact them here.
If you’re looking to experience the best powder Akakura has to offer then the private Powder Program at Myoko Snowsports is for you. An 8:30am start time gets you the freshest snow, and your instructor will guide you around the resort’s hidden powder areas. Suitable for both first-time powder skiers/snowboarders looking for their first try, plus also for experienced off-piste riders wanting to explore the deepest areas. More info here.
Deep Powder Snowboard Tours
Deep Powder Snowboard Ninja tours will provide local snowboard guiding depending on your skill level. These tours are not a backcountry tour, but an inbounds guided powder tour. Tour staff are local, well known and qualified snowboard instructors. The company owners also run Senke Hotel in Akakura. Book here.
