Niseko Skiing Number Two

Filed under: Japan — Tags: , — admin @ 4:56 am

Hirafu, Hokkaido, Japan.

I thought I had better take some photos today. It is a holiday here in Japan so it was a bit crowded and there was not a huge amount of new snow overnight – less than ten centimeters. I got the early lift up the Ace quad and here is the view back towards Hirafu village.

I skied half way down the Super run and stopped near a pylon to get some shots of the random punters skiing past.

I then went up the top of the Ace double number 3. This was the line up for the Ace number 4 lift. I did not bother lining up.

I waited for ages half way through the trees skiers right of the Ace #3 but nothing decent came up. I got this one from the lift. I like the higher angle.

My battery ran out after this. This photo is by Sarita Leal , from the top of Hanazono Number 2 lift. Mount Yohtei.
