Experience our Shimamaki cat skiing programs and get ready to ride untouched powder on the Karibayama mountain range near the Sea of Japan!

Our season is limited to just 10 weeks and 24 guests (2 cats) per trip. These two day trips depart at 15:30 on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday, from beginning of January through March (weather permitting). Like all cat skiing, the number or runs, amount of vertical and terrain skied will depend on the avalanche conditions and the groups ability. Our record for the most vertical skied in a day was 13runs (6,500meters) but the average has been between 2,800 – 5,000 metres, or 9,000 – 15,000 vertical feet of powder snow per day.

You’ll be staying in the sleepy, coastal village of Shimamaki, famous for it’s big mountains, trophy salmon fishing, and abundant seafood. Located two hours southwest of Niseko, Shimamaki is a cultural experience we believe makes this program about more than just skiing. For more information, please click here.

Prices include meals, avalanche gear, and transportation to and from Niseko.
