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 are available on weekends allowing those with advanced bookings access to the tram 10 minutes before regular lift ticket holders. Freestyle skiers and riders who get a kick out of exciting attractions will love the two terrain parks.
