Description

If you are looking for a unique and unforgettable skiing experience, look no more! This Japanese volcano will not disappoint you. Mount Yotei is a stunning stratovolcano in Hokkaido, perfect for adventurous skiers.

At an altitude of 1,898 meters, Mount Yotei is the highest mountain in the region and the longest ski descent of the island. It is also called Ezo-Fuji, which means the Mount Fuji of Hokkaido. Even though the volcano is active, the last time it erupted was 6,000 years ago.

The summit has an outstanding 700 meter-wide crater that creates spectacular snow conditions with wind bringing snow from all directions. The way to the top takes about 5 to 8 hours.

If you have more time, we can visit other resorts in the area for more ski touring or freeride skiing. Some of the resorts I recommend include Niseko, Rusutsu, Nakayamatoge, Asahigaoka and Rankoshi Chisenuppuri. We can also ski down Yotei as many days as you want and explore the local beer, food and traditional hot springs at the foot of the mountain.

So stop searching the internet and book your trip now! I can guarantee you will love this Japanese adventure.

For more adventures in Hokkaido, follow me on a 7-day backcountry skiing tour or a one-day multi-pitch climbing trip.

Yasuko was very knowledgable about the area. She tailored our outings based on our requests, and we had great fun in the mountains near Rusutsu and Yotei.
