Best Mountains to ski in Japan?
I am going to Japan December 27-January 6. What are some of the best resorts in the country to ski pow?
Also not sure about pow but for sure Hakuba has some really nice resorts. I'm pretty sure there are 3-4 mountains all a really close drive from one another in case you get bored
Hakuba has 5 resorts scattered up and down the valley that you can catch a quick bus ride to. All except Cortina do not officially condone tree skiing.
However, a quick tour from the top of most of the areas can get you into some serious BC quickly with 4000ft laps back to town. I'd only go with someone who knows the area and has good avy knowledge, its a monstrous snowpack.
I would think that the Armada JJ 2.0's would be good in the super floaty pow, or the Faction Candide 4.0's, but any light fat ski should be fine.
