While reading about skiing in Japan I came across this picture:
The resort you see is Happo One - Hakuba - Japan. The only resort that has some steep (not really) lines. What interests me more is what is behind the resort, and most importantly, can I climb these peaks behind the resort without getting locked up, or something of that nature. Can I do unguided backcountry skiing there? Any special rules, requirements?
I understand it's a though question, so any help is greatly appreciated in advance.
