Ski touring in Hokkaido, JapanHi all,
I am new here, and don't even live in Canada (I am a Kiwi living in Hokkaido, Japan) but thought I would drop you all a line with an information page I've put together about ski touring in Hokkaido. I figure at least some of you may have been here, or plan to head over here at some stage - really you must!
While there's a mountain of information in Japanese about backcountry skiing in Hokkaido (e.g., the excellent Hokkaido Snowy-mountain Guide book) There isn't much info out there in English.
So this is my small effort to make things a little bit more accessible.
Hokkaido Ski Touring Routes: http://www.14degrees.org/hokkaido-backcountry-ski-touring-routes/
It is a free conglomeration of trips I've done over the years. GPS route files, mountain hut information, and trip reports.
