Weiss Powder CAT skiing
Claim the entire mountain for your and your closest friends or family. WEISS cat skiing is a showcase for Niseko’s world-famous champagne powder. Long, deep runs through both meadows and forest, Mt. Weiss is a true introduction to the Niseko backcountry. Join a group of other powder-lovers, or hire the entire cat to give your family the perfect introduction to powder and the backcountry. Lunch included.
Guests will complete an average of 6-7 runs in one tour. The steepest run is 30+ degrees and the average is 20 degrees. The maximum vertical decent is 450metere. The CAT has a specially-made cabin that can fit up to 12 guests, keeping them warm during the ride up.
Niseko Weiss Powder Cats will operate one tour per day. The tour will either be a group tour with 12 individual seats available or a private tour. Guests booking a private tour can have up to 12 guests in their group.
