JAPAN : SKI FREERIDE

HOKKAIDO ISLAND

This winter, Montagne Escape suggest going skiing to Japan, most precisely to Hokkaido, incredible land known for its cherry blossom spots but also for the quality of the snow which covers its mountains.

 

Actually, this land is a place to discover skiing. It’s a very mountainous country with nice powder snow falls, abundant and light. It’s an irresistible invitation for great tracks and wild descents into birch woods.

More than 1000 mechanicals lifts offer an exceptional potential for off-piste and cross-country skiing!

 

Furthermore, the Japanese culture and gastronomy make it worth visiting it at least once in a lifetime.

Finally, in the evening, after a nice skiing day, we will be able to enjoy some nice hot springs: the famous Japanese Onsen!

 

IMPORTANT: a Visa is not necessary for short term visits (less than 3 months). Confirm requirements per country.
