What’s better than a rousing day of snowboarding? Making your own board shred down the silvery Hokkaido powder. And on this guided activity in Biei, you can do just that. Although yuki-ita literally means “snowboard,” this isn’t like any snowboard you’ve seen before. Made by stacking together wooden boards, the lack of binding means it feels more like surfing on the snow. Feel free to choose your design, from the shape of the board to the color. Once you’ve finished creating your unique board, head out onto the fresh snow to see just what your yuki-ita can do!
