Hakkaisan Trails

Hakkaisan is a hidden powder treasure trove, with one of the steepest and longest powder runs in Japan. A majority of the upper slopes are left ungroomed and can be lapped with quick and easy access via the 81 people tram that whisks visitors 2,217m up the mountain. First Tracks is a service that allows you to get on the ropeway 10 minutes before those with regular lift tickets. It is available only by reservation, and on limited dates. Freestyle skiers and riders who get a kick out of exciting attractions will love the two terrain parks.
* Skiing outside of the area managed by the ski resort is prohibited.
