Description

The Makkimo Route up Yotei-zan (1898m) has some of the most picturesque glades of native white birch on the mountain.

This route gets its name because it's situated between the Makkari and Kimobetsu Routes on Yotei, the iconic free-standing volcano east of Niseko.

With plenty of parking at the trailhead, it offers some excellent skiing on the upper and lower portions of the route.

Like most popular routes up the mountain, the most reliably good skiing is had below around 1300m.

Beyond that, be prepared for icy conditions.
