Our trips to Japan are built for intermediate to advanced skiers with moderate to good fitness. We will be ski touring (mainly resort accessed touring) and skiing deep snow for seven days, meaning your legs will feel it!
Basic backcountry skills are required for this trip and we will review avalanche skills on the first day.
We strongly recommend that all guests purchase trip cancellation insurance and most importantly trip medical and evacuation insurance.
We also do recommend that all guests purchase medical insurance and evacuation insurance if you
do not already have a policy. The specific is evacuation and repatriation insurance coverage, most travel policies do not cover this, please check with your provider to see if you are covered. If you are injured while skiing in Japan and need to be evacuated to a higher level of care, the evacuation expense is to be covered by the injured party. Basic travel insurance does not cover this and we want to ensure that you are adequately protected in the event of an injury.
We highly recommend our insurance partner https://www.globalrescue.com for our international insurance
needs. They provide comprehensive medical, evacuation and repatriation coverage. Please go to ourWhitecap link here https://ss.globalrescue.com/partner/whitecap/index.html read through the information and details and lock in a policy that works for you. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
