Maetokachi (前十勝, 1,790m) can be approached from a few different angles. The classic, easily navigable route heads up the Kabawara Ridge, but that can sometimes be buffeted by high winds. If the weather is otherwise clear with good visibility, then it might be worth hopping from one sheltered rocky outcrop to another, and taking some time out of the wind at the very basic Tokachi Emergency Shelter Hut. From the shelter it is possible to access a nice downhill run in a bowl that runs all the way from the very active Taisho Crater (大正火口) fumeroles back to the hut.
