The highest mountain in the island of Hokkaido, Mt Yotei (1898m) has made a name for itself among Japanese ski tourers.

The descent is the longest on the island and a challenging one as well. You’ll enjoy the incredible views as an added bonus!

This beautiful mountain is also known as Ezo Fuji (Hokkaido’s Mount Fuji) and every year attracts many climbers. However, the ascent’s success rate is quite low.

This is mainly due to weather conditions. Mt. Yotei is an independent peak and, thus, is very easily affected by changing weather conditions. And at comparable altitude, temperatures are also lower than in the mountains of the main island of Japan.

The altitude gain is of 1700m, with steepness increasing halfway up. You can expect a challenging ascent! But rest assured: the views and the sense of accomplishment you’ll get once you get to the summit will be well worth it!

I can take up to 4 people to the summit of Mt. Yotei. Please be aware that you need intermediate to advanced ski touring skills to participate in this program.

You’ll find the best snow and weather conditions from mid-March to early May. During the months of January and February, the probability of summiting / skiing from the summit of Mt Yotei is very low.
In fact, because I consider it as highly avalanche prone during these months, there is a good chance we may decide not go at all.

Don’t hesitate to contact me to reserve a spot for yourself and your group well in advance. I’ll be happy to guide you to the summit of this mythical summit in Hokkaido!
