Who’s this Detour for?

This Detour is for those comfortable skiing/riding all groomed trails and starting to explore off-piste. You don’t have to be threading lines through tight trees and bombing down open powder faces… that’s what you’ll be doing by the end of the week!

This five-day camp is predominantly coaching-based. Our top ski and snowboard coaches are the perfect people to tune-in your powder skills while guiding you to the best spots in the area as you become more confident in your new found skill base.

Please Note: The Niseko United resorts are generally used for the first couple of days before heading further afield. However, lift tickets should NOT be pre-purchased as decisions on which resort we will be visiting each day are made daily, depending on where has the best conditions.
