Though designed for snow removal, did you know that Hachimantai’s snow caterpillars (also known as snowcats) also provide rides through the region’s backcountry? Ride out to the pristine and otherwise inaccessible Daikoku Forest (formerly the Hachimantai Ski Area) and carve up some of the finest powder in the world in the vast stretches of Hachimantai’s snowy backcountry.The powder doesn’t get much better than here; whether sliding down on it on a snowboard or skis, we’re certain you’ll love it!
In order to provide fun and safe options for both experienced riders seeking a challenge as well as those who’d prefer a more laidback experience, CLUBMAN offers two flexible options for Cat Skiing, CAT&RIDE and CAT&HIKE. The CAT&HIKE requires skins or snowshoes and involves hiking about an hour to Mt. Chausu. The CAT&RIDE also involves short hikes so the runs always go through virgin powder.
