A3 SIZE - Yotei-zan Ski Touring Routes (Hokkaido, Japan)

What's new:

Makkimo Route added.


Mt. Yotei (i.e., Yotei-zan, 羊蹄山, 1898m) is a near-perfect, free-standing conical volcano just east of the bustling Niseko ski resort area in southern Hokkaido. This impressive mountain is also referred to as Makkari-nupuri in the indigenous Ainu language. Yotei-zan's dramatic southeastern aspects offer some of Hokkaido's best backcountry skiing for intermediate- to expert-level backcountry skiers. Here, we outline four established backcountry skiing routes up Yotei-zan. Beyond around 1300m in altitude is solid ski-mountaineering territory, so all times and descriptions here assume skiers will only ascend to the 1300m 'powder line', and descend from there.
