HOKKAIDO - The hidden Hokkaido, other resorts

Hokkaido has 19 resorts and 5 cat ski operations all in the interior of the island.


Some of these operations run only in the weekend. Some have ski in / ski out accommodation, all are worth a visit from a dedicated powder hound.  Most of these resorts can be accessed by public transport, but in most cases hiring a 4wd rental car is the easiest way to get around.


Speak to our Mad Travel guru’s to organise your dream trip to interior Hokkaido.


MAD STATS: Some of the major resorts, there are more !

Tomamu - Home of a Club Med resort Tomamu has 700m of vertical, 6 lifts and a large awesome offpiste forest for advanced skiiers


Ashidake - A huge back country area accessed by one huge aerial ropeway (gondola). This area is a no frills experience for serious powder hounds.


Kiroro - A medium sized resort with 610m vertical, 10 lifts and 23 runs. This area gets 21 metres of snow a year and is quickly being discovered by the west!


Kurodake - Another Ropeway tram accessing acres of epic terrain. Kurodake is for the fearless skier! Its best done as a day trip when you can pick your weather as the tram is often closed by inclement weather.


Kamui Ski Links - A fantastic little resort which gets incredible snow and has some really good tree runs. 600m of vertical, 8 lifts and some stunning off piste, Kamui is well worth a visit.
