Avalanche Gear & Snow Trekking Gear Rentals

For those who want to play in various backcountry fields such as Mt. Asahidake and Mt. Tokachi based in the city of Asahikawa, we have started a rental service of avalanche gear (avalanche equipment) and snow trekking gear!


Asahikawa Ride offers a backcountry gear rental service.
Rental gear includes avalanche gear (avalanche equipment) such as beacons, shovels, probes and backpacks, and snow trekking gear such as snowshoes, snow hikes (ski shoes) and telescopic poles.
Asahikawa Ride has introduced a 24-hour rental service, so you can use it for 24 hours from the time you rent it.
For example, you can rent it in the afternoon of the first day and take a walk in the low mountains near Asahikawa, and the next day you can aim for Asahidake powder in the morning.
There is a special discount for guests staying at Guest House Asahikawa Ride! (The discount applies from the check-in date to the check-out date.)
Please make a reservation from the ”Application Form”.

Avalanche gear (equipment for avalanche) rental

Snow trekking gear rental

・ Snow hike (ski shoes) is a short ski with a non-slip back. The floating heels allow you to climb the slopes like snowshoes and slide down the slopes. Suitable for strolling on snow in undulating areas. You can wear it with winter shoes or boots.
・There are two types of Asahikawa Ride snowshoes, MSR Lightning Ascent and MSR Revo Ascent. Lightning Ascent is the pinnacle of backcountry snowshoes, lightweight and climbing. The Revo Ascent is a model that combines the features of both Lightning and the classic EVO, and is a snowshoe with excellent grip and a durable structure.
Crampons for skis and splitboards are ”SKEATS skin cleats”. It can be attached not only to skis and splitboards, but also to boots and shoes as simple crampons.

Fat skis with tour bindings and climbing skins (seals) for backcountry skiing are also available for rental.
