AKAKURA FIRST TRACKS FLOW (en)
Tour Stage I (am):
FIRST TRACKS, Low Angle Powder by SNOW CAT. Ease into the day.
Get comfortable skiing or riding off trail/side country. Initially, we forerun mostly private low-angle slopes. If time allows, we have a deal to get us a pre-opening lift ride. Everyone should do fine here, and then we move up to the next level.
Tour Stage II (am):
By about 10 am the activity transitions to a more difficult stash of side country runs, some of which are not generally used by our ski area partners. Here it is generally steeper and deeper.
This gets you ready for the grand finale!
Stage III (noon):
In the afternoon we will hike up and out of the ski area. Somewhere along the trail, partake in fresh locally prepared BENTO lunch and suck up the local flavor.
Stage IV (early afternoon):
This is the main event. We’ll find ourselves some sweet lines in a back bowl or treed run, and then you will be guided back to the resort.
Stage V (pm):
around 3:30 you’re free to grab a last run independent of your guide, or:
Go straight for our hot spring bath.
Later that evening, you are also welcome to try out night skiing, NIGHTER PASS is our shout(included).
