Shamansha-dake (社満射岳, 1063m) is a veritable backcountry playground with some spectacular skiing slopes on a number of aspects. It's a relatively efficient backcountry route too - from the trailhead skiers are very quickly gaining altitude on steep pitches though a forested ridge. Very little time is wasted on the short flat-land approach. On the way to the Shamansha-dake peak proper is the minor unmarked peak locally known as Takenoko-yama (タケノコ山, 1039m). From there, skiers have the choice to make the traverse to Shamansha-dake or make laps of the large double-gully west-facing bowl below Takenoko-yama. Either way, both peaks give great views across to Minami-furano and Lake Kanayama. See the full route overview on Hokkaido Wilds: https://hokkaidowilds.org/ski-touring/shamansha-dake
