The ski touring route up Chitokaniushi-yama (チトカニウシ山, 1446m) starts high up on the Kitami Pass (北見峠, 857m) in northern Hokkaido. This gives relatively easy access to good snow and amazing views of the surrounding northern Daisetsu mountains. The basic up-and-back route along the southwestern ridge allows some good skiing, but experienced backcountry skiers will enjoy sampling the various faces and bowls from the summit. If conditions are stable, the south-southwest bowl or the steep western face just below the summit are good candidates for laps.
