Snow in Hakkoda
Ice and snow cling to the trees, causing them to grow into large, monstrous shapes. Ideal period: Jan.-Feb. Can be seen from the ropeway’s Summit Park Station.
Only 30minutes’ drive from the city centre, these slopes are perfect for beginners. Equipment is available for rent. (Charges apply)
Credit cards not accepted
On April 1st every year, this road between Sukayu Onsen and Yachi Onsen (see map above) is reopened after the winter. Take a bus or car ride between the towering walls of snow. The road is also opened to pedestrians for a special walking event at the end of March.
