As one of the highest peaks in one of Hokkaido's coldest locales, Santo-zan in Horokanai (幌加内三頭山, 1009m) is a challenging peak for experienced ski tourers seeking an athletic, steep, and engaging day trip. While only just over 1000m in altitude, Santo-zan (literally 'three-headed mountain') requires a good level of fitness, technical uphill skiing ability, and route-finding. The skiing on the northeastern aspect gully is short but steep, the latter aspect a relative rarity in Hokkaido. Expect the same great views as other locales in the area, including across to the majestic Mashike Range to the southwest.
