The Mikuni Cat Experience
Sliding, but better

At Mikuni Cat we believe that we have discovered a better way to enjoy the mountains. With good friends, amazing snow and untouched backcountry terrain; what could be better than a day spent with us?

Based in what was once Mikuni ski area, these days the ski lifts and resort structures are all gone. This means that what we have left behind are nice clear open runs, as well as trees and some more challenging slopes for the more adventurous!

There are no lines, no J-pop and no stress. Just perfect virgin snow, miles from paved roads, with friendly people who love being in the winter mountains. With only 10 guests per day, our emphasis is on quality over quantity: gentle, intermediate terrain and trees, the right number of runs for the conditions, and a whole lot of fun.

Conversely, if you are looking to huck cliffs, or expose yourself to high avalanche danger and complex terrain, Mikuni is not the place for you. While we do have some expert terrain, we pride ourselves on being accessible to a broad range of skill levels, from first-timers through upper-intermediate backcountry enthusiasts.

Our professional team can also charter days for corporate groups, independently guided groups, and film crews. If you would like to bring your group to Mikuni, please get in touch and tell us what you would like to do, we will do our best to find a way to make it work.
