Climbing Mt. Fuji while it is still covered in snow is definitely the best opportunity to experience the mountain in it's most natural conditions, without crowds, roped off paths, or vending machines. Beginner snow climbers are capable of completing this objective with some basic instruction, and we manage risk by climbing during the spring season when the snow is soft and the consequences of a slip are minimal.We descend the mountain on sleds when the snow conditions are ideal.Crampons and ice axe are required for this trip and we have cheap rentals available. We will provide you basic instruction that will allow you to ascend the peak safely.Snow climbing is only available betweenMayand June.
