BURTON LTR is designed for beginners to learn basic skills such as turning or stopping easily and to have fun from the first day on a snowboard.

    If you are thinking, “I want to be better at riding on powder.”, “I want to be able to turn with high speed.”, “I want to ride stable in the backcountry.”. a freeride lesson is the lesson that you are looking for.

  • Snow Activities | Beginner Backcountry – R8-9

    For beginners, we offer 2 Day Course with a short avalanche study and beacon training. For experienced riders who have joined our beginner tour before, we offer a One Day Course that you can challenge steeper and deeper terrain. For those who would say, “Winter mountains?? Ummm….”, we suggest you join Spring Backcountry Course which starts in May. Starting at Kuraigahara [ 2350m ], after a 45 minute bus ride from NORTHSTAR’s lodge. Most of the spring hikes are shorter than the winter hikes. You can ride down to the ski resort until the middle of May. The spring season would be best for beginner backcountry riding. We also offer 2-day tours that stay the night at the Kuraigahara Lodge. Please contact us for more details.
  • Snow Activities | Backcountry Tours – R9+

    Come and experience the thrill of riding one of Japan’s top backcountry areas. Mt. Norikura [Highest Peak: Kengamine - 3026m] has good snow condition all season long because of its geographical features and it gets fresh snow even in May. Hike up from the top of the Norikura Kogen Onsen Ski Resort [2000m] and challenge one of the peaks, ride in trees, and experience a natural half-pipe. Our guide will take you to the best runs according to the weather and your riding level.
  • Snow Activities | Snowshoe Tours

    Even if you don’t go snowboarding or skiing you can enjoy the winter season in Norikura on snowshoes. Walking on fresh powder snow feels like walking on a cloud in the sky. Your guide will arrange the tour for your physical ability and your desired destination. First timers and kids can also enjoy.
  • Snow Activities | Spring Backcountry – R8-9

    From Golden Week (1st week of May), we offer Spring Backcountry Tours. In Spring the weather is more mellow and you can enjoy some good corn snow. Or you might even have fresh powder seeing how it’s not uncommon to get new snow in April and May. Trying backcountry in the spring is a great way to get ready for winter backcountry next season. We will run tours until the first weekend of June. For those who stay at the NORTHSTAR Lodge, we are offering discounted tour packages. Also if you stay with us, you can try a backcountry tour on day one and a mountain bike tour on day two!
