About your host

Hello, I'm Rob. I've been an AirBnB Superhost for 5+ years as well as a snowshoe guide for 10 years. I love introducing people to the fastest growing winter sport...snowshoeing. It's a great way to experience Niseko from another vantage point, the forest! And we'll burn a few calories too. We'll do some wildlife spotting for ducks/geese, woodpeckers, rabbits, flying squirrels, and fox (or a good…

What we’ll do

Meet up and ensure everyone is prepared for the ~75 minute snowshoe trek (gloves, hats, & sturdy boots preferred). We'll go to our spot and I'll fit everyone's snowshoes. We'll get on the trail and enjoy a hot drink half way. We'll stop a few times to rest. There are plenty of photo opportunities. We'll finish up and go back to Hirafu. We're usually gone 2-2.5 hours.

Where you'll be

Niseko weather is unpredictable. We'll likely hike down to a frozen lake near the Mt Yotei volcano or other another trail near a river but it depends on the weather, fitness levels, and ages of guests. The hike takes ~75 minutes on the trail but with transport, putting on snowshoes, and a safety briefing, we'll be gone 2-2.5 hours total. Please watch out for tree branches & falling snow from trees.
