The Powder Odyssey Tours take you deep into Japan's central island of Honshu where you will visit some of Japan's best kept secrets, and have unprecedented access to the off-piste and side country at some of Powder Recon's favourite resorts (the only company Japanese or foreign that is allowed into some off-piste areas…meaning more fresh tracks for you!)
In addition to powder, genuine Japanese cultural experiences are high on the agenda. Some of the accommodation is likely to be in ryokans with amazing onsens for soaking the aching body. The evenings will be spent eating at amazing tradtional Japanese restaurants in nearby cities or towns.
Designed for maximum flexibility our Odyssey Tours travel across several different prefectures on Honshu including Iwate, Miyagi, Aomori, Bandai and Gunma. We run limited tours every week,so please speak to your Powder Recon representative to discuss your preferred destinations.
Your Powder Recon guides will present you with the most up to date weather/snow forecasts every day, and based on these factors, the group will make the most informed decision as to which resorts will suit us each day. The Odyssey Tours have multiple different start points depending on the specific tour you chose. Some of our start points include Morioka, Takasaki and Koriyama.
Our goals on the Odyssey Tour are to get you and your group in prime position for first lifts every single day, and using our in-depth knowledge of each mountain we visit to provide you with the ultimate skiing/snowboarding experience. This tour is 18 snow seasons in the making, and you will visit places that most foreigners have never heard of, and even fewer have ridden. Whether it’s guided sidecountry/backcountry riding you’re after or your first true experience of dry northern Japanese powder, Powder Recon is guaranteed to deliver with the Odyssey Powder Tour.
