Details

Asahidake Ski Resort is located on Hokkaido’s highest mountain and consists of a single ropeway, two carriages service the route that takes you 1600 metres , the mountain rises above to almost 2300 metres. From the top of the rope way station you can access side country or with some hiking open up some other great runs.

We recommend that you take a guide plus avalanche gear for the ultimate powder experience.

The resort has 4 courses for the intermediate skier that wants to stay on trail, from these trails side country can be accessed and all trails lead back to the base station where you can do it all again.

A highlight of the terrain at Kamui Links is the off piste and out of bounds areas that are easily accessible. Best of all, off-piste skiing is permitted, unlike neighbouring ski areas where it is heavily policed. The inbounds off piste areas are predominantly tree skiing (with some potential bamboo skiing) and the out of bounds or sidecountry areas is a combination of open areas and tree skiing. 

The tightness of the trees varies significantly between areas, so there is something for everyone, with great zones under the gondola, however not all the valleys lead down to the resort base. Ski patrol does rope off some areas to indicate the resort boundary, but do be careful as sometimes these are white. 

There is also some easily accessed out of bounds areas that require no hiking. In many areas the spacing between the tree is beautifully wide and with not too many riders venturing out of bounds with powder being fresh and rather deep. 

Asahidake is a no frills ski areas with very limited services and facilities. Shopping and dining options are limited to the ropeway station at the base of the ski area and the few hotels nearby. There is a small visitors centre which is open during winter, however its main purpose is to service the many summer tourists who visit the area for hiking. There is one cafeteria upstairs in the Asahidake ropeway building with typical vending machine fast-food Japanese dishes such as ramen and curry.
