The off-piste tree skiing is good and not a lot of people go off-piste so fresh tracks are easily found. From the 2016-17 season, new courses will be developed at the rear of Mt. Sahoro, which will provide ungroomed runs for the powder lovers!
There is a Snow Sports School at the base of Sahoro Gondola Station, however there are no English speaking instructors.
Equipment Rental is available from the Sahoro Resort Hotel or the Sahoro Gondola Station. The equipment is standard as in most smaller Japanese resorts. If you have any specific requirements you may prefer to bring your own gear.
