Hirafu and Annapuri

Filed under: Japan — Tags: — admin @ 12:49 am

A sunny day out.

Yesterday was nice and sunny, so I had a few runs at Hirafu and then went over to Annapuri. There was no powder left. It was all tracked out and even my little stashes had been vandalised.

Niseko Village.

There has not been any fresh snow for about three days and I was gettting a bit toey, so I went for a ski this morning to get rid of the cobwebs.

I did a few runs down from the hooded triple at Hirafu, then headed for the Gondola at Niseko Village.

Skiing with Friends

Skiing at Annapuri.

This morning I had to catch the bus to Annapuri because the top lifts at Hirafu were closed. The bus was super crowded. What a nightmare! I met my friend Toyo at the Nook restaurant and had fried chicken (Yakitori) and rice.
