Backcountry ski through untouched nature!
Unlike regular ski slopes, backcountry skiing can take you through the rugged, snowy mountainside. Enjoy the thrill of gliding through backcountry and kicking up powder snow on untouched terrain.
There are many places to backcountry ski, but most notable are the two located within the Daisetsuzan National Park, the Daisetsuzan Asahidake Ropeway in Higashikawa and the Daisetsuzan Sounkyo Kurodake Ski Area in Kamikawa. Once you climb to the starting point by ropeway, you can enjoy fantastic skiing on quality powder snow. We recommend taking the Daisetsuzan Powder Tour with professional adventure skier, Mr. Wada!
There are also guided backcountry tours from the Furano Alpine Visitor Center and Shintoku Tokachi Adventure Club.
