The mountain has the best snow I've ever boarded on, and it’s totally not crowded. It’s a relatively easy mountain but very enjoyable. You can get bus ticket/lift ticket deals if you want to go for a day trip from Sapporo during the winter. It costs around ¥5,000 for the bus and lift tickets, not including rentals.
