Hi Andy

You can use Hyperdia to check for Train Routes,
If you are unfamilair with Hyperdia I would recommand reading our travel blog post about it here.

I looked up the route for your with the JR-Pass, Route 1 can give you and idea of what the trip would look like. If the trip is a bit to long for you to make in a day, consider a stop over in Aomori or Hakodate.

Enjoy the Snow!
