Kamui Links


Kamui Ski Link is under 30 minutes drive from Asahikawa the second biggest city in Hokkaido. It packs plenty of retro-chic as you step into the 80s when you arrive. The chair lifts give you plenty of time to faff with your gear on the way up, and they are all romantic two seaters. The main cable car is of classic vintage although they have fitted snowboard racks wide enough for fat skis. Being so close to the city it can be popular on the weekend, but never more than a small queue. Weekdays are a good call as you will be sharing the slopes with a few baby boomers and the occasional school groups which always stick to the learner slopes.

The pistes offers some steep race quality runs which are sometimes prepped for race practise. But you are unlikely to be here for the that. The posters dotted around the resort do not try to hide the fact that Kamui is all about the trees, in fact, Kamui is the home of the ‘V de Tree-omphe’. If you are planning to venture further afield, there is an arm band you can obtain from the ticket office. The normal out of bounds rules and implications apply. It is worthwhile to be self-sufficient with your own gear on your adventure.

What to expect

Great tree runs and a few pillows and trees to jump

Why We Love it

One of the best weekday location to ski as only school kids, army and retirees ski there (and they stick to the runs) leaving the awesome side country to ski tourists. Easy and short ski tour out of BC area.

"Exceeded all expectations"

I’m so pleased we found Pat because it absolutely made our trip. He’s such a friendly guy as are the small team that work with him… he snowboards and most of the test of the team ski so we were well catered for and I was relieved that he made allowances for our mixed abilities.
