Shiribetsu-dake Northwest Gully Backcountry Skiing (Hokkaido, Japan)


This route up the northwestern corner of Shiribetsu-dake 尻別岳 (1107m) is, relatively speaking, a mellower route to the popular 989m false peak on the mountain. It offers relatively lower-trafficked access to the false peak than the West Bowl, easily one of the most popular backcountry zones in Hokkaido. The 989m peak offers a number of appealing descent aspects for the experienced backcountry traveller prepared to carefully assess snowpack conditions. Locally, Shiribetsu-dake is known as Hokkaido's most avalanche-prone mountain, so extra care must be taken on this very accessible, attractive peak. See the full route overview on
