Porotengu (幌天狗, 1222m) is unmarked on official topomaps, but it offers inspiring views of remote peaks in the interior of the Mashike mountain range. More of a walk than a ski - but still with some fun, easy skiing on the upper portions - this route is perfect for the long, warm days of spring. To the south are expansive views of the Japan Sea, the top of Mt. Yotei way in the distance, as well as Shakodan-dake further south still. In the later spring months, be prepared for some bush-bashing lower down on the overgrown forestry road.
