Mount Yohtei Summit Tour – When arriving in Niseko, you can’t help but be awed by the majestic bulk of Mount Yohtei, a lone standing, an almost symmetrical volcano that has been dubbed “the Fuji of the north”. Conquer this mighty peak with Black Diamond Tours’ Yohtei Summit Tour.
To skin up the 1898m peak can take between five and eight hours, and it’s a true test of fitness. A fully qualified and highly experienced guide is on hand to show you the safest course up the mountain. Once at the peak you are rewarded with the longest ski descent on the island. If time allows it, you can drop into Mount Yohtei’s snow-filled crater for some wide open powder runs. How many people can say they’ve shredded a volcano?
Mother Nature is the boss when it comes to ideal conditions for scaling Mount Yohtei. Wind, visibility and avalanche conditions must all be taken into account to ensure you and your group can safely climb this iconic mountain. Conditions can change quickly throughout the day, and guides may be forced to turn the trip around to avoid incoming weather or due to a lack of daylight hours.

Due to unpredictable weather, Black Diamond Yohtei Summit Tour cannot be booked in advance.

Please advise of the dates on which you are available to climb Mount Yohtei. If weather and conditions are favorable, you will be contacted the afternoon before the proposed trip.
