Horokanai Higashikotanbetsu-yama Ski Touring (Kiritachi Pass, Hokkaido, Japan)


Kiritachi Pass (霧立峠, 387m) is one of the coldest, snowiest low-elevation passes in Hokkaido. Directly to the south of the pass, accessed via an easy ridge-line traverse, is an unnamed peak, known locally as Higashikotanbetsu-yama (東古丹別山, 615m). From the peak, there is excellent skiing on northerly aspects, belying the peak's low stature. The vertical drop on each lap is not much more than 200m, but invest in a good skin-track, and a whole wealth of terrain becomes accessible for a day's worth of skiing for the enterprising ski tourer.
