Shokanbetsu-dake 暑寒別岳 (1492m) stands beside the wild and bleak coastline of the Japan Sea, and is subject to the full force of the savage winter winds. It therefore receives huge dumps of snow, which lingers long into spring making this the ideal time to explore its summit and upper slopes. It’s a long trek to the summit but on a fine day the big mountain atmosphere, far-reaching views across the ocean and the great skiing in the treeless upper bowl are more than ample reward.
