Taruame-zan (樽前山, 1041m) is a very active volcano on the southern side of Lake Shikotsu caldera, about 40km south of Sapporo City. The summit gives expansive views of Lake Shikotsu and the Tomakomai Plains. Almost perpetual wind strips the upper ridges of snow, so crampons are recommended. If approaching the mountain on ski, then you may find that you'll need to depot the skis part way up. The hut at the summer trailhead has a hutkeeper year round, but is not available for overnight stays, except in an emergency.
