Hachimantai Cat Ski Trip

Score yourself some Hachipow out snowcat skiing. Head to Iwate to get away from the crowds - share the cat skiing slopes with only 7 others! Add a couple of days of Hachimantai cat skiing to your Iwate itinerary or make it your main reason to head to the region.

The Hachimantai Cat Ski Trips includes 2 days of guided snowcat skiing where you can revel in amongst the famed Iwate powder (approx. 6-8 runs per day). Ride up the slopes in the comfort of a pimped out snowcat and ride down the Hachipow, with open bowls and ridges and super spaced tree skiing.

The Hachimantai Cat Ski Trips include 2 nights of lodging. You can choose from 3 options: simple lodging with communal bathrooms; a high end hotel with an onsen and rooms with ensuite bathroom (western rooms or Japanese tatami rooms); or the full Japanese experience in a ryokan with outdoor onsen (hot spring) and gorgeous multi-course kaiseki dinners.

Breakfast and dinner are provided by your accommodation, whilst lunch is a bento box which can be eaten inside the snowcat or outside (pending nice weather).

See the Hachimantai cat skiing overview for information on the terrain and location.
