Hachimantai, a holy land of powder snow, CLUBMAN Mountain Guide Leader


The Hachimantai area is blessed with some of the best dry powder in Tohoku. You will first gain altitude with a dedicated snowcat and then hike up for about an hour to access higher ground. The end goal is a vast skiing field. The tour will take a full day, including climbing back up and down, allowing us to select slopes with the best conditions. The use of a cat allows you to focus on skiing allowing you to conserve your energy.
