Snowshoe tour

Lake Hangetsu

After a short drive away from the ski resort, this trail will start at the base of Mt Yotei.

This trail will start with a walk up to the edge of the crater before we are treated to views of the crater lake and possibly the peak of Mt Yotei (weather permitting).

We will then have the options of moving around the ridge line of the crater or take a walk down to the lake itself. The trail is approx. 2km long and is a combination of inclines and declines.

This trail would be perfect for older adventurous families (minimum age 8 years) people who have snowshoed before or groups who are looking to see beyond the resort boundaries.

Common Questions

What should I wear?
We recommend that you wear ski or snowboard clothing, including waterproof pants and jacket as well as warm under layers. We advise that you are also prepared with winter boots, gloves, winter hat or beanie and goggles.
What do I need to bring?
A small backpack with your personal belongings, camera and water bottle is all that you will need to bring.
My children are younger than 4 years old, can we still participate?
If your children are 2-3 years old and you are happy to carry them you may be able to do a snowshoe tour. We also may be able to customise a tour to fit your group’s ability level, in these cases please enquire within and let us know the age and fitness of the members of your group.
