Powder hounds listen up: Hokkaido is world-famous for its powder, and Asahidake is the best place to get a taste. Almighty Mount Asahi keeps the good stuff cold, crisp and perfect - you’d be crazy not to spend a day in heaven!
An hour’s journey from Furano, uncrowded Asahidake has just one cable car providing easy access to hundreds of metres of vertical and a few easy trails which lead to eye popping off-piste opportunities, including challenging tree skiing.
Tours usually leave Furano at 8am and return around 4/5pm. The best backcountry day you'll ever have.
