Naei-yama 那英山 (819m) offers a nice walk on skis just west of Kamifurano Town in central Hokkaido. While most skiers will be drawn to the mighty Daisetsuzan Range to the west, Naei-yama is a much more relaxed low-altitude skin along the forested border of Kamifurano and Biei Town. The approach is very mellow, so most skiers will find they'll prefer to have their skins on for much of the descent as well as the ascent. But there is short, sweet, and steep open area just below the summit to get a few powerful turns in. On a good day, the summit will afford expansive views to the Tokachi Range to the east, and across the Furano plain.
