Iwate | Hachimantai CAT Tours

Backcountry skiing with CAT vehicles in Hachimantai, Iwate

Experience backcountry skiing with CAT vehicles! Hachimantai is one of the best places in Japan for top-quality powder, with excellent smooth snow in the backcountry slopes. You’ll see this for yourself in the silky flurries kicked up in the wake of your descent. With a grand-scale view stretching from Mt. Iwate as your backdrop, the feeling of freedom as you race down Hachimantai’s slopes is like no other. There are various types of terrain that changes based on each season, so you’ll never have the same experience twice. Heavy-duty CAT vehicles will carry you to the best spots, saving you all of your energy for the ride down! Ski resort slopes are one thing, but Hachimantai’s backcountry is not an experience to be missed.
