Heli skiing epitomizes the ultimate skiing adventure – with the excitement of flying, substantial machinery, and the exhilaration of skiing down some of the largest and finest mountains. Niseko is fortunate to host an award-winning Heli Tour, granting skiers access to the most vertical, untouched skiing in Hokkaido’s renowned powder.
Experiencing heli skiing in Niseko is an absolute must-do, if the opportunity arises! The heli tour is operated by Rusutsu Resort and Hokkaido Backcountry Club on Shiribetsu-Dake, located right next to Rusutsu Resort. The peak stands at 1107m, offering impressive long runs down to the base averaging 650m in length, featuring steep pitches with gradients reaching up to 40 degrees.

On a clear day there are stunning views out of the cockpit across the entire area, Mt. Yotei, and occasionally with views extending all the way out to sea.There’s nothing more exciting than getting fresh tracks in some of the best snow on earth.To stay in Niseko and try Niseko’s Heli Skiing for yourself, contact our team.
