Hokkaido is famous for its volcanoes, natural hot springs (onsen), and ski areas, the northernmost of Japan's main islands. The territory of Hokkaido is 83,456.58km2, which is 22 percent of the country's total land area. Hokkaido, as a country, is currently the world's 21st largest island. The people of Japan are proud of the big island, where nature combines so well with the lives of people. Hokkaido is famous for its high quality and freshness of its seafood because the cold waters around the northernmost prefecture of Japan are ideal for fish and sea vegetation. It was formerly known as Yezo, Yeso, Ezo, or Yesso. Some areas in the county are particularly famous for a specific commodity, such as Rishiri and Rebun's uni (sea urchin).
When you imagine luxurious travel experiences there’s a decent chance a ski resort vacation comes to mind. Picture hotels filled with jet-setting guests in from around the world. Perhaps there’s a hearty fire, a bottle of Champaign, and a spread of cheese. Snow falls gently as Alpine cabins radiate a warm glow, protecting those inside from cold mountain winds. Infectious smiles adorn children eagerly awaiting their first chairlift ride. Trendy cafes offer up tasty drinks as chefs hurriedly prepare kitchens for the evening dinner rush. Where exactly are those places epitomizing this ideal? We got it into our heads to look around the world and bring you a sample of ski resort destinations offering the best in their respective regions. Whether it’s Canada or Chile, Austria or Japan, these are Trip.com’s top places to hit the slopes.

Here’s 3 secret ski trips off the beaten path I have done in 2020:
1. Niseko in Japan. Famous for endless deep powder and this view over Mt Yotei volcano. One of my best ski trips ever!
2. Skiing in Iceland is rare for most and days like this one with perfect blue skies as definitely not common. however this day everything just lined up and then Iceland is an amazing place to ski.
3. Lyngen in Norway. We went by boat to access remote islands and the walk up to the peak to ski down. An incredible nature experience and great skiing too.
