A short drive away from the ski resort in the neighbouring town of Kutchan, home to its local ski hill called Asahigaoka which has some beautiful snowshoeing trails during the winter months.
This trail will start with a walk up to through the forest before reaching the top of the ski field to give you clear views of Mt. Yotei and Kutchan town (weather permitting).
This route has multiple trail options, all offering a varying degree of difficulty.
This trail would be perfect for older adventurous families (minimum age 8 years) who have snowshoed before or groups who are looking to go beyond the Grand Hirafu area and see this snowy wonderland from a different perspective.
