Niseko Ski Resort

Niseko   is   the   most   famous   ski   resort   in   Japan due   to   almost   non   stop   powder   conditions. The snow    just    never    seems    to    stop!    Riding    is permitted   pretty   much   anywhere   so   it   is   easy to   get   powder   on   almost   any   given   day.   It   is also the largest ski resort in Hokkaido.

Rusutsu Ski Resort

Rusutsu   is   one   of   the   best   places   in   Japan   for tree   runs   in   deep   powder.   Easy   access   straight of   the   lifts   mean   that   you   can   do   ride   them over   and   over   till   your   legs   are   ready   to   fall off.   Once   you   have   been   once   then   it's   hard   to go    anywhere    else.    It's    only    an    hour    from Niseko.

Furano Ski Resort

Furano   is   one   of   Japan's   biggest   resorts   and has   one   of   the   biggest   vertical   drops   of   nearly 1,000   mtrs.   It   is   more   known   for   it's   leg   testing long    groomers    than    anything    else    but    does have   great   backcountry   and   side   country   runs too if you know where to look.

Sapporo Teine Ski Resort

 

Teine   is   only   an   hour   from   Sapporo   and   is   not   a large   area.   It   has   a   range   of   terrain   suiting beginners    to    expert    riders    although    not    too much   in   between.   It   has   breathtaking   views from the top.

Kamui Ski Resort

Kamui   is   close   to   Asahikawa   city,   and   has   2 benefits.     Firstly,     you     will     see     very     few westerners   there,   making   your   day   seem   more culturally   authentic   and   secondly,   there   are   no real off limit areas.  

Hokkaido, Japan Ski &

Most people who go to Hokkaido just go to Niseko and maybe Rusutsu, but with over 100 ski resorts Hokkaido has much more to offer than that. This page has a summary of the main resorts or you can go straight to each resort’s webpage via the quick links below.

Tomamu Ski Resort*

This     resort     is     only     an     hour     from     the international   airport.   It   is   a   small   resort   but rarely   gets   crowded.   The   cable   car   gets   you   to the   top   lift   which   provides   some   great   tree runs. There is a great snow park.

Kurodake Ski Resort*

Kurodake   is   on   the   other   side   of   Asahidake, and   again   it   is   not   really   a   resort,   rather   a mountain   with   rope   way   access.   Best   run   is straight   under   the   ropeway   with   some   of   the steepest skiing in Hokkaido.

Saporo Kokusai Ski Resort*

Kokusai   is   about   an   hr   from   downtown   Sapporo and   can   get   a   little   crowded. The   groomers   are nothing     to     write     home     about     but     the sidecountry    tree    runs    will    keep    all    but    the most expert riders happy.

Kiroro Ski Resort*

Kiroro is close to both Sapporo and Niseko, and has great tree runs (albeit not too steep) with reliable snow. Has great lift infrastructure and will suit beginners and intermediates.

Asahidake Ski Resort

 

Asahidake   is   not   really   a   ski   resort,   more   like   a mountain   with   a   ropeway   to   give   you   access.   It is    not    especially    steep    but    gets    lots    of extremely   dry   snow   (driest   in   Japan?)   and   is   an all natural terrain.
