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.
A snowshoe is a tool for the sake of walking in the snow, yes, that’s a pair of snowshoes alright. A snowshoe is a walking ski so to speak. Do you walk, or sometimes do slide. Either way, they are a reassuring partner when you go onto a road off the beaten path where snow has piled-up. Well, where shall we go, what shall we do wearing our snowshoes or ski-shoes.
