The Daisetsuzan Powder Trip

179,000Yen / person based on a group of 5

Highlights: 6 Days / Central Hokkaido to Sapporo / 1 hotel change / Mix of lift access and backcountry touring

Daisetsuzan translates to mean “Great Snowy Mountains” and refers to Hokkaido`s largest mountain range which runs through the center of the island. Ski areas in this part of the island include Furano, Asahidake, Kamui, Kurodake and Tomamu. Tokachidake is also located here and is an incredible backcountry touring zone.

This trip can be based from either Furano, Asahikawa or higher elevation alpine areas such as Asahidake and Tokachidake depending on your group`s interest and the timing of your visit.

After a few days in central Hokkaido, the Daisetsuzan Powder session wraps up in Sapporo where we`ll have the opportunity to visit Kiroro, Sapporo Kokusai or Teine Highland.

Throughout the trip, we`ll let the weather, snow and your interests dictate where we end up each day.
