Ski Asahi Dake
Description: The Asahi Dake area is an adventure skier's paradise. Asahi Dake village is at the base of Hokkaido's highest mountain, Mt. Asahi (2291 M). This area is famous for its access to the huge Daisetsusan National Park, its hot spring baths, extreme skiing and a powder snow season that can last three to four months. The area is serviced by a gondola that gives lift serviced access to unroped, vast powder bowls that stretch as far as the eye can see. See here for more details on the area.
Lifts Only: We expect to ski from 3-5 runs, depending on which runs we choose. Some runs require a short walk in and a traverse back to the base of the gondola.
Lifts & Backcountry: Lift access to the top of the gondola. Then either more gondola rides, or climbing, depending on weather (visibility) and snow conditions. Explore and ski the superb powder in the almost powder filled valleys to the north or south of Asahi Dake ropeway. Climbs up to an hour are possible to access this rarely skied terrain.
