Kamui enjoys an average of eight metres of dream-like powder snow a season, and sheltered inland, is known for its brilliant blue skies in winter. Lift passes are also very reasonably priced here, and there’s a course for everyone – as well as plenty of great snow activities – during the season from December to early April. Riders with deep powder experience head to the Treerun Course, Bumps Course, and Todomatsu Course near the summit, designated black runs with inclines of as much as 35°, and tightly spaced trees.
A 30-minute drive from the centre of Asahikawa, Hokkaido’s second-largest city, Kamui Ski Links is the only resort that serves real Asahikawa ramen – the ultimate after-ski comfort food.
