central hokkaido powder belt
The ‘Powder Belt’ is found in Central Hokkaido and incorporates the Daisetsuzan Range and surrounding resorts. The area stretches north to south and catches the predominant westerly snow
that constantly blows across the island. The powder here is exceptionally light and dry due to the cold temperatures and low humidity. This is our backyard and where we chose to base our
ski operation, for the exceptional freeriding and backcountry product it provides. More off the beaten track than the more popular Niseko and SW region of Hokkaido, there is a nice local
feel. Combining fantastic food, soothing hot springs and the friendliness of the locals, this definitely will exceed your expectations of a ski trip to Japan.
