There are so many places that you can find untracked pow pow. Just be sure to wear a helmet and ski amongst the trees to your hearts content. You will never tire skiing here and you can avoid the crowds

If you are staying near Hanazono, it is for sure the best way to access the mountain. It is much more quiet, less busy, and accessible than Hirafu. They also have really good rental equipment both skis and snowboards, and the staff was really helpful....More

Well maintained area with heaps of off-piste runs. Groomers are pretty nice but more for skiers as there are some flats. Decent sized park with 2 larger kickers, rollers and a couple of tables/rails
