349,000Yen / person based on a group of 5

Highlights: 7 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 and a number of excellent ski touring areas are also located in this area giving us lots of options each day.

After several days in central Hokkaido, the Daisetsuzan Classic 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.

Avalanche safety kit and ski touring or splitboarding equipment is required for all multi-day trips. Rental available with a 20% discount offer for all Rising Sun guided tour guests – more info here.
