Maetokachi (前十勝, 1,790m) is another classic staple for backcountry skiing in the Tokachi Ranges. Its broad, plank-like north-western face is a veritable playground of wide gullies and snow-fields. Here, we outline the classic Kabawara Ridge route, which is the most-traveled route on the mountain for backcountry skiing. Like Sandan-yama nearby, the route is accessed from the hopelessly amazing Hakuginso Lodge - a mountain lodge boasting to be the "mecca of powder" with everything you could possibly want: onsen hotsprings, a large communal kitchen, a large basement drying room, friendly staff, and only 3,250yen a night.
