Shiraoi-dake's (白老岳, 968m) impressive sharp peaks belie this relatively diminutive hill's size. Sitting just west of the westers-most reaches of the Shikotsu-ko Caldera, the knife-edge summit ridge gives spectacular views across to Tarumae-zan, Lake Shikotsu, and the Pacific Ocean. Just to the west of the peak is Kita-Shiraoidake (北白老岳, 945m), an impressive triangular peak with very steep sides. While this routes is most popular among snowshoers due to the initial flat approach, it makes for a fine ski tour too. There's some playful downhill on the upper half of the route.
