Asahidake Ski Ropeway

Hokkaido, Japan

Asahidake   is   Hokkaido's   highest   mountain   and   on   top   of   that   it   is   an active    volcano.    It    is    not    really    a    ski    resort    as    such,    more    like    a backcountry   zone   that   you   don't   need   to   do   any   climbing   for.   Having   said that   it   is   exhilirating   to   make   the   700   mtr   climb   to   the   summit   where you   can   ride   down   through   the   smoke   emitting   fumaroles   and   that   is   one of   the   big   alpine   attractions   at   Asahidake   (see   the   7   day   tour   on   the right).   Although   the   "resort"   has   4   courses,   these   are   really   more   to   aid you   getting   back   to   the   ropeway   as   the   bottom   half   is   rather   flat.   It   is much   more   fun   to   take   some   off   piste   runs   (completely   allowed   and encourage)    and    then    rejoin    the    groomers    towards    the    bottom.    The ropeway   takes   you   about   500   mtrs   up,   and   runs   every   20   minutes.   The   2 tours below often visit Asahidake.     10 day Hokkaido Unplugged tour     11 day Ultimate powder tour" tour
