Kagura Backcountry Classic Map

3~4 hours loop. A classic backcountry tour out of Kagura. Get paperwork at the shop in the middle of the parcking (down the ropeway). From top of lift romance 5, pass the gates (you will be checked for beacon and paperwpork). Then go up, slightly on the right. Then follow the ridge. Early in the season the stream might not be sufficiently covered by snow to pass easilly (you might better go back at higher elevation, back to the bottom of Romance 5 lift). you Can make many variations of the tour by adding some down and up on the sides.



Wide gentle slopes at around 20 degrees or less.

Low Exposure (E1)

Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.
