Niseko Weiss Powder Cats is operated by Niseko Hanazono Resort and offers a prime opportunity to experience Niseko cat skiing.
The tours operate from Mt. Weisshorn, which was once a ski resort. These days, the entire mountain is available for Niseko Weiss Powder Cat Tours. The cats are designed with a custom-built cabin that holds up to 12 guests. Groups are led by a certified guide, who can offer advice on the best spots on the mountain and ensure your safety throughout the day.
A trained photographer will also take part in the tour and provide a link to the day’s epic photos so you’ll never forget your day of Niseko cat skiing. A day generally consists of an average of 6-7 runs and about 2,400 meters of vertical, although the vertical total for the day is dependent on the ability of the group and the conditions. Only one tour operates per day with up to 12 guests maximum per tour. Pre-bookings are highly recommended.

The cat skiing takes place at the former Weisshorn Ski Resort, which is located next to Hanazono. The terrain consists of mellow bowls above the tree line and wide-open runs with spread out trees below the treeline. The pitch of the runs is about 20 degrees to 30 degrees. The elevations range from 450 to about 950 meters.
