Snowshoe tour

Asahigaoka Loop

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.
