I love ski and hot spring. In eastern part of Hokkaido, there are several nice hot springs and local ski areas. I live near Memanbetsu Airport and there are three local ski area close to the airport. I drive a small four wheel drive van and I can pick you up to the place where you stay and I can take you to the local ski area and after ski, let's enjoy a hot spring.

Some of the closest ski areas to Memanbetsu Airport are Wakamatsu ski area, Mt Lili ski are and Lake vies ski area.

There are hot springs in Abashiri, Ozora and Bihoro cities.
