A smallish yet epic ski resort in Hokkaido, Kiroro gets tons of famous Japow making the backcountry an absolute haven for powderhounds and the highlight of the resort. The off-piste area is roped off, but if you'll do anything to ride through deep powder then complete the appropriate forms at the lift office, enter through the gates, shred away and check back in at the end of the day. For snowboarders, be sure you're waxed well as it's a bit flatter than nearby resorts.
