TOP 5 SKI RESORTS IN HOKKAIDO, JAPAN
Hokkaido is to powder skiing what the Hawaiian North Shore is to surfing. The northernmost island of Japan is a Mecca for powder hunters – its reputation built upon the staggering quantities of snow that fall every winter. Hokkaido ski resorts often receive in excess of 15 metres per season, though many of the resorts simply don’t measure (why bother).
But it’s not all about quantity. Snow storms over the north of Japan are mostly the result of cold winds blown over from Siberia, which pick up moisture over the Sea of Japan before depositing huge amounts of snow on Hokkaido’s many ski resorts.
The outcome? Some of the driest, coldest snow you’ll find on the planet. The consistency of the snow is truly like powder, and the effect on a skier carving through a fresh 50 cm snowfall is the sensation of weightlessness. It is the pinnacle of skiing – the feeling that every skier on the planet strives for.
Over the last decade, international skiers have cottoned on to the quality of skiing in Hokkaido, and the result is that many Hokkaido ski resorts now offer services, facilities and accommodation geared towards overseas travellers.
And while Hokkaido was once considered a destination for the seasoned ski bum in search of a powder fix, its resorts are now being visited – and truly enjoyed – by beginners, families and luxury travellers.
We’ve put together a list of the top 5 Hokkaido ski resorts, and we genuinely believe that the resorts in our list offer something for everyone. So read on, and let us know in the comments if you have any questions.
