The Yotei-zan (羊蹄山, 1898m) Kimobetsu Route (喜茂別コース) is one of this volcano's more popular routes, for good reason - from around 1400m down to 800m is an uncannily plane-like slope that seems to stretch out in all directions. If it wasn't covered in waist-deep fluffy powder, you'd be forgiven to think you're standing on a groomed slope. For the more adventurous, there are also a few gullies to the left and right of the route that will allow for some relatively sheltered couloir-like downhill skiing options in stable snow conditions. Like all routes on Yotei-zan, the most consistent skiing on this route is to be had from below 1300m.
