Shiribetsudake (Mt Shiribetsu or 尻別岳) is my go-to backcountry peak in the Niseko area. It's an all weather destination as it's pretty much all below the treeline, which makes it a great option on those d-e-e-p, stormy days. The approach is pretty short from the road and whilst the runs are short, most of them are quite steep. There's the odd opportunity to get airborne and there's quite a few different faces for variety. #snowboard #ski #splitboard #backcountry #hokkaido #japow #japanuary.
