From the summit, cut through the trees to return to the second headwall. At the bottom of the first snowfield/meadow, pick your way through the trees staying left (most people take the gully and cut left) to another prominent meadow. One more group of aspens, and the third meadow becomes apparent. Just beyond the trees at the bottom of the third meadow is the road where you started.
Numerous variations exist into some rather tight trees, but this route is well-traveled enough that you can get pow turns in the meadows and follow tracks through the trees to the next mostly-unskied meadow.
If you are skiing early season, keep in mind there is a lot of deadfall and broken leg potential lurking under shallow snow, especially in the aspen trees.[more]
Japan is an untapped resource for many backcountry users. The terrain is great, the days are long, and the snow has been really good in the last few years. More and more recently people are getting out skiing off-piste in japan, and there is a lot to explore still!Japan
How to Get There
Go west or east, and you will get there. You will want to fly into Tokyo for your first international flight, and then you can hop around the island.
