Niseko Ski Fun

Filed under: Japan — Tags: , , , — admin @ 11:06 am

Hirafu, Niseko, Annapuri Ski Resorts.

This morning I headed up the Hirafu Gondola with Alexander and Andreas, my two mates from Sweden. The day was clear and the wind had died down. First up, we skied down to Niseko Village through the trees and down the gullies. Then up the gondola and headed off to Annapuri. We went through Gate 1 and traversed a little bit then went down the fall line. Up top the snow was icy due to the previous days’s wind.

Then we headed up the quad chair and another double and went through Gate 7. Mostly it was tracked out. But there were a few patches of fresh snow here and there.

After Annapuri, we headed back to Hirafu and headed through Gate 9 to the waterfall run.
