Mt. Kurodake (黒岳)in Winter | Sounkyo/ Daisetsuzan National Park (層雲峡・大雪山国立公園)

The greatest appeal of winter is fluffy powder snow. Today we went to Sounkyo/ Daisetsuzan National Park (層雲峡・大雪山国立公園) to enjoy the winter world!
This is Sounkyo Station (層雲峡駅)↓

Let's go to the 5th station of Mt. Kurodake (黒岳) first!!

Here we are. It takes only seven minutes from the first to the second ropeway station.
This is Kamuimintara (カムイミンタラ), which means a "playground for gods" in Ainu language.

Wow! Wow! Wow! How beautiful it is!!!

The ski slopes on Mt. Kurodake (1,984 m) open when the first snow of the season falls in various parts of Hokkaido.

Surprisingly, we can enjoy skiing here for a long time; from November to May!!!

I personally recommend snow hiking in woods↓

The gears are available for rent at the Kurodake Station (黒岳駅) on the 5th station.

Just a few weeks ago, we enjoyed autumn leaves like this↓, but the time passes so quickly!!

In the summer time, we can enjoyed wonderful alpine planes on the mountain.
