First time trying skiing! There are instructors at the side to give lesson at 10,000 yen for 90 mins. Rental of equipments are also available - 8,000 yen for full set. Instructor is friendly speaks understandable English. Very safe area for solo skier. I went on my own after 90 mins, fall a few times but it was really fun. It is rather tiring though, had muscles ache right after the ski. Solo travellers may buy individual tickets up.

Quiet little ski filed that has plenty to offer for snowboarders. There's some off piste areas which my family of upper level snow boarders liked. Need to organise transport by bus the day before (before 17:00) or you could be up for a 5000Yen taxi that takes 35 minutes from the Asahikawa train station. Lft tickets for the days were 3100Yen per person which is very reasonable. Quiet little eating houses at the base. I'd go again but posting this review may mean its more crowded next time. Its central Hokkaido so can get very cold.

i love my first experience to see mountain for skiing. it is so easy to get here from asahikawa station, u can book snowbus.jp one day before ur depature for 2000 yen all round. it only take about around 30 mnt to arrive to kamui ski link. u can rent all the gear. unfortunately for me, the ski lesson for first timer in english is fully booked so we unable to learn how to ski. but worry not, u can just see the scenery from above with the yellow gondola that take u to the highest point of the kamui ski link and the view is very beautiful. there is a cafe on the top that provide hot drink, snack and even a fireplace that what u really need bcause of the cold up there. when we waiting for our bus to take us back to asahikawa station, we wait in restaurant that sell yummy hot ramen and soba in the base. i really love the environment, it is small but for the first timer like me it is enough.

We took the SnowBus here. It was very easy as the bus picked up at our WBF hotel. A normally 25 minute route took an hour as there were several pick up points including the JR Asahikawa station.

We got on the bus at 8am. On arrival at 9am, it was a half hour more to get our rental equipment. Quite quick really. The staff processing the rentals were nice. But when I gave my height in feet and inches; they looked at me in surprise like I was from the dark ages. “Huh footo??” The restaurants/cafeteria opens at 10am; so we had a hot meal first. I know we diddledaddled awhile and got on the slopes at 11am. But it was a good plan. We didnt come back in during lunch when it was crowded. Almost five hours straight on the slopes with just a short hot drink break inbetween.

The slopes were never busy; we never once waited to get on the lift. The long gondola ride was easy too. The slopes were wide and easy to manage for beginners and intermediates. There are lots of off-piste routes that are open with no restrictions by management. No ski patrol staff anywhere.

It’s mid February and there’s lots of snow; yet personally the conditions could be better. Snow texture was crystal and not powder; maybe cause of the low temperature. I needed to dig in a bit. Rental boots were by Fischer. They were new, but fitting wasn’t perfect.

There are only three single-person rooms for changing. It is unisex and the locker room is unisex also. So if you need to change into your longjohns and ski pants, it’s best to be pre-dressed before you arrive. The large locker is yen400 and the small ones are yen200. At the cafeteria, there are several open storage racks there. Most people would leave their ski bag there free of charge. It’s safe.

Cost was yen9500 which includes return bus ride, lift ticket and ski rentals prepaid online through SnowBus. Return bus ride was at 4:30pm.

Kamui Ski Links is the best Ski Resort in Asahikawa. Canmore is for night skiing only and Santa is for small children.

Skied here on a Whiteroom Tour, a great day. While only a small resort the skiing was very good and the off piste skiing was untouched. Highly recommend for a day or more.

Most of the groomed areas in this resort are open and wide and excellent for the beginner and intermediate skier.
The tree skiing and out of bounds areas are something else again. Lots of open forest and when the powder is plentiful then I would not miss out on coming to Kamui. With excellent lift access there is enough terrain to ski fresh tracks for days after a solid snowfall.
When I was there in the third week of February it was very quiet so no lift queues.

Easy to access from Asahikawa for day trips. Excellent range of slopes and plenty of off Piste runs if you search a bit more than usual.

We ski mostly side- and back-country and Kamui provides plenty of good runs if you have skins and are prepared to put in a bit of effort. Try the curry donut at the top of resort.

This is a small ski field on the edge of Asahikawa and is mainly used by locals and domestic tourists.

Advanced riders and skiers will be bored silly so dont even bother. Go to Furano where the snow is just as good or better and there is back country and the like.

The snow was great and the slopes were fine for beginners. A lot of the gondola equipment is brand new.

The real let down is the food. Simply put it has the worst food available I have ever seen anywhere at a ski resort on the planet. So bring your own or go hungry.

We expected it to be quiet and it would have been except for the hordes of school kids and the military who seem to do their ski training there.

Getting there: the bus leaves from a number of hotels and the train station. You can pay on the bus itself or reserve with the hotel.

You can hire gear at the resort and it looked like the standard type of stuff.

My Tip: if you came all the way from overseas to ski, going a little further to Furano wont kill you.

No on-mountain accomodation so you need to get a lift or bus there. Lots of ski school around the day lodge and lower front slopes but there is terrain to be found if you head left or right off the top lift.
