Half-day Nature Skiing Tour in Norikura Kogen

As the name “nature skiing” suggests, this sport takes you off the ski slopes and into nature. Nature skis feel light and free but tend to have less stability than regular skis. Experience the fun world of heel-free skiing by leisurely strolling across Norikura’s snowfields or, for a rush of excitement, dash through the wind and slide down a few small slopes!
