Powder Recon Tour Packages
At Powder Recon Japan, we specialise in guided tours a little off the beaten track.
Through years of experience, we believe the ski resorts offered through our packages and tours deliver a unique riding experience with far fewer crowds, less westernised influences and more untracked powder. We offer our own accommodation in Myoko Akakura, 4wd transfers to resorts, premium rentals and customised packages for our Central and Northern tours.
The Myoko Package is your custom-designed ticket to up to 13 individual ski resorts, all within a short drive of the main village. Considered among Japan’s premier ski destinations, Myoko Kogen remains largely undiscovered by foreign powder hounds compared to other ski regions of Japan. This means more powder for you, fewer crowds and a truly cultural experience.
The Central Odyssey Tour is an adventure through the Bandai & Gunma area of central Honshu. Chasing the best snow and terrain in the area, mixing with the best of the culture that Japan has to offer and some epic terrain, the Central Odyssey Tour has been a hugely popular tour with Powder Recon clients.
The Northern Odyssey Tour chases the best snow on offer in the northern Tohoku area. Typically starting in Morioka and finishing in Aomori, the Northern Odyssey Tour assesses the conditions daily to find the best skiing possible each day of the tour.
Purpose built to cater to the needs of Powder Recon clients, the Powder Recon Lodge is built in a French chalet style, with family rooms, single rooms and twin single options and a healthy dose of communal living space you're sure to find comfort in your week in Myoko.
Built with native Japanese timber, and in a traditional Japanese manner, with a modern twist the Powder Recon Lodge has been proudly built using mostly local Japanese labor.
Kogen House is a self-contained apartment complex next door to the Powder Recon coffee shop & rentals. Situated in the heart of Akakura and a stones throw from the chair lift, Kogen House is beautifully finished in native Japanese timber.
