We love canyoning so much we created a winter version! An incredible winter adventure that gets you amongst Japan's world-class powder snow without using a snowboard or skis.

Giant sliders, zip lines, rappelling, jumps and more! Using the natural contours of the mountain we slide down giant snow chutes using just our body. Our custom-designed slider suit keeps you warm and dry as you fly through the powder at speed. A very unique way to experience the mountains of Japan!

Can I try it?

  • No experience required. 

  • Ski, and snowboard skills are not required. 

  • All gear is included, we give you everything. 

  • A moderate level of fitness is required.

The half-day course is a great introductory to snow canyoning and only requires a low level of fitness. This is perfect if you are just wanting to have some easy fun in the snow. This course is mainly run in January and March.

The full-day course is a full-on mountain experience and requires a decent level of fitness (being able to walk in snow for 5 hours). This is the course for those that want higher thrill levels and a deep mountain experience. This course is mainly run in February.
