Kurodake Backcountry Skiing (Hokkaido, Japan)

What's new:

Added UTM grid (for grid referencing) and updated POI designs.


Kurodake 黒岳 (1984m) is an impressive buttress to the high Daisetsuzan plateau at the northern end of the Daisetsuzan Range. It’s a popular backcountry ski destination, due to its ease of access via the Sounkyo Ropeway, whisking skiers to 1300m, close to the treeline. Flanked by deep gorges lined with precipitous cliffs and bluffs, the peak is a sight to behold. For the intermediate backcountry skier with good steep-skiing and ski touring skills, this bread-and-butter route to the rocky summit is a fine objective in good weather.
