We will head over to a wonderful local forest where we will strap on our snowshoes and go for a fluffy powder snow hike in the woods. Since snow is everywhere we can make our own trails where ever we wish. Every step we take will be us making our own fresh tracks where we can observe and follow fox, rabbit and deer tracks through the woods. We will enjoy the quiet serenity of the forest with soft fluffy powder snow under our feet. We can climb hills or descend into little valleys completely free to roam the mountain side based on your level of fitness. Don`t worry if you don`t have significant snow experience. Walking on powder snow is like walking on a cloud and I will take you to areas suitable to your ability. This experience is great family fun.
I have been enjoying the wonders of winter in Sapporo for over 20 years. Yearly I guide friends and family in the mountains either teaching them cross country skiing or snowboarding. I have been hired privately numerous times over the years teaching people of all ages these various snow maneuvering skills. Three times I have entered and completed the 11km ski walk in the Sapporo International Ski Marathon held every year. I have vast knowledge of every trail in the local forests and I am eager to share my knowledge and passion with you.
I always have a tupperware in my backpack loaded up with fresh carrots, apples, grapefruit or lemon for an energy boost.
Snowshoes, poles and I have extra sets of goggles for use.
We will enter into the forest from the Makomenai area. From here I will guide you on the many trails in the forest. The best part of snow walking is we are free to roam the mountain where ever we like exploring all sorts of valleys and peaks along the way.
Contact me if you have a group of more than 4 people. Great family fun. Children over 7 years old can participate in this experience. Please overdress. Once we start moving our body temperature will rise and we can take off the necessary clothing.
