Powder Recon has been operating out of Myoko Kogen since 2006. The company was established by a group of friends who wanted to share their passion of the Japanese culture and incredible snow conditions that consistently fall in the Niigata prefecture.
Historically, Powder Recon has only provided guided tours for their own clients as part of their accommodation and lift pass packages. As of the 2017 winter ski season Powder Recon will run daily guided tours for walk in groups. Guided day trips can be arranged at the Powder Recon office building and include pickup and transfer for you and your friends via your very own private 4WD van to one of the many neighbouring resorts around Myoko Kogen. A maximum guide to client ratio of 1:5 means you will rarely ride over your own tracks and also allows Powder Recon’s guides to provide you with an epic adventure with safety always in mind. Ski Myoko clients who wish to take advantage of Powder Recon’s exceptional guiding skills will receive a 20% discount.
The daily guiding tours are very popular and subject to availability, so be sure to book once you arrive in Myoko to ensure you get a spot during your trip.
