Interested in some backcountry cat tours? Check out http://untracked.japaho.com/untracked/guide/cattour/

Here's a video from a few years back.

... not that cheap... You can go heli-skiing for only a little more...

Any idea on the vertical of the runs?

Is there any steeper terrain, most of the footage looks fairly mellow? Is it all below the treeline or is there any alpine terrain?

How far is it from Myoko?

I haven't done it myself Method. Just putiing it out there for interest. I think it might be somwhere up near Uonuma. If you contact them directly they do have at least one English speaker on the crew to reply.
