The days are cold and short during the Asahikawa winter but there's plenty to do to keep visitors occupied during the winter months. The majority of winter visitors head for the mountains, chasing the dry, perfect, powder snow for which Northern Hokkaido is famous.
Asahikawa gives you access to great snow in all directions, with Kamui Ski Links, Asahidake, Kurodake, Pippu, Canmore, and Santa Present Park a short distance from the city, while Furano, Tomamu, and Nayoro among others, provide longer range options.
The Winter Festival and Ice Sculpture Contest in the second week of February are always worth checking out, while the winter season at Asahiyama Zoo continues to attract increasing numbers of visitors year by year.
The resort has 3 unique mountains, offering long, wide and quiet trails. You will never get bored exploring our large varied ski area.
