Wow you're really getting around Hokkaido. Great photos!

If you're still in that neck of the woods, I recommend fish and chips by the harbour at Utoro.

Nice thread OzSB. You've definitely been getting around. I take it this part of the trip more for the sight seeing then the snow?

How long was the drive out to Shiretoko from say Tomamu or Sapporo? And was the sea ice worth it?

yes my gf flies home friday so the shredding will resume.
i did the drive to shiretoko from obihiro and id say it was about 4-5 hours stopping every now and then. we didnt actually see much sea ice, well the big chunks anyway, we saw small ice, but id say its definitely worth going out there, its been my favourite part of hokkaido fwiw

Were those soldiers any good on the slopes? The ones I've seen at Kusatsu look like the first day of a beginners class.

ozsnowbum, going to some interesting places nice pics too.

Could you perhaps upload your photos of skijo to the main site here?
You seem to be going to lots of small places that don't get much (or any) coverage.
It would be great to have them on the main site linked in with the skijo.

bit of a solo mission today. summited mount pon, snow was great, about 20cm or so.
the weather is going to be pretty brutal the next few days so theres no chance of summiting rishiri, the plan is to play around at 800metres on the north face

it was about a 4 hour round trip, the difficult part was breaking trail in 30cm deep powder which ive never done before.
a few mount rishiri videos coming soon.
we have had some brutal weather, windy, white, cold, tiny bit of sun.
but the skiing has been incredible.
