Niseko Weiss Powder Cats
Your own private mountain.
If you are looking for fresh tracks and the mountain just for you and your friends, Niseko Weiss Powder Cats is your answer! It provides cat assisted ski and snowboard adventures on our own private mountain. A maximum of 12 guests per day guarantees line after line of fresh tracks without queueing for lifts or hiking.
Weiss CAT Tours provide a relaxing deep powder experience. The terrain is suitable for intermediate powder skiers and riders, or advanced guests who want an exclusive adventure. Please check our Off-Piste Ability Chart. Groups are joined by several guides to give advice on the best spots on the mountain and ensure your safety throughout the day. New for winter 2019-20 is a luxury lunch at the nearby Somoza restaurant, allowing you to sample some of Hokkaido's best produce refuel for more cat skiing in the afternoon. Photos will be taken as part of the tour and links will be provided to the day's epic photos for you to keep as a memory.

Bottomless blower pow on every run was well worth it. Door to door service! NISS was extremely responsive and patient with all of my questions through the booking process.

The Weiss CAT Tour terrain is tame, which was perfect for my husband an I. I really felt safe and improved my powder skiing so much in one day. We will definitely come back to Weiss during our next Niseko trip.
We joined Weiss on a beautiful sunny day with fresh snow from the night before. Perfect! The views are incredible as well, with Mt. Yotei and the Niseko resorts all visible at the top. A great experience being the only people on the whole mountain!
