You will climb and ski down the mountain in its natural state, not on the ski slopes managed by anyone. We will start our walk at the end of the ski lift or at the trailhead where there is no lift and walk to the entry of a good slope or to the summit of the mountain. You will enjoy fresh snow, large pistes, and tree runs that you cannot experience on the ski slopes as you make your way down the mountain. ＜Pricing＞ ・ Up to 6 persons per group ・ 49,000 yen per group regardless of the number of participants
