THE DETAILS

Hokkaido is the most northern island of Japan. These mountains are typically volcanic and you might find yourself touring next to an active, smokey fumerole. While the mountains of Hokkaido don't reach much higher than 7,000 ft, the northerly latitude and cold Siberian winds drop immense amounts of cold smoke powder. During the winter snow covers every inch of this island, so it's not hard to find an abundance of resorts and backcountry areas to explore.

 

Classic Hokkaido destinations include Niseko, Rusutsu, Kiroro, Furano, and more. The beauty of a road trip is the freedom to travel on your own schedule. Just a 4 hour drive takes you from Niseko all the way up to the big volcanoes of Central Hokkaido. After all, Hokkaido is the birthplace of "Car Danchi", a movement among Japanese snowboarders who travel the island in RVs and campervans in search of the deepest powder.
