Adds something to snowshoeing and ski-shoeing
In eastern Hokkaido, you can enjoy snowshoeing and ski-shoeing in any area. That’s what I would have thought as a lot of nature has been largely left intact throughout much of Hokkaido.
If there is such a program that while you were snowshoeing and ski shoeing, you could have a different kind of experience, then it wouldn’t be too bad for a traveler at all.
As a matter of course, prices and times differ depending on added extras, therefore regarding standard prices and durations, please check in advance.
If you visit eastern Hokkaido, without fail what you should challenge yourself to try is backcountry skiing. It is so called mountain skiing. In this area, the conditions which charm skiers such as powdery snow and a perfect location are all present. On a mountain without a ski slope, to leave a trail of ski tracks must be more fun than you could imagine.
Ski/ Snowboard lessons
Skiing and Snowboarding is perhaps the reason why many people travel to Hokkaido in winter. Are there any people who say it’s impossible because they don’t have experience and give up? You don’t need to worry. Skiing and snowboarding lesson programs are available at a lot of skiing resorts. Let’s really make a debut on the fine powder snow ski slopes.
Ice walking/ ice diving
In the northern provinces, as days with temperatures of 10 degrees below freezing are not uncommon, the lakes also freeze. It’s delightful as you are able to walk on top of the lakes. It is fun just to savor that indescribable feeling but perhaps you will have a lighter gait to be able to see the superb views waiting for you ahead. Let’s enjoy a stroll on the lake and seek out a landscape that’s not possible to see in summer.
