The winter route up Oputateshike-yama オプタテシケ山 (2012m) is a rare southeastern-aspect ski tour deep into the Daisetsuzan National Park. Skiers' nine hours of toil will be rewarded with about 1000m of quality downhill on the return. With the vast majority of daytrip accessible peaks in the Daisetsuzan Range approaching from the northwest, however, Oputateshike-yama's charm comes from its fresh perspective on the Daisetsuzan massif. Above the treeline, skiers are treated to expansive views along the southeastern side of the range, including Tokachi-dake, Tomuraushi-yama to the north, and Bieifuji to the south. This route is most popular in the long spring days, but the trailhead is accessible all year round.
