Haru-no-taki 春の滝 Spring Waterfall

This week in Hirafu Haru-no-taki 春の滝 (in english Spring Waterfall) has started flowing in volume which is another sign that spring is well and truly here. Haru-no-taki is between Hirafu Ski Ground and Niseko Village Ski Ground and is strictly off limits during winter. It is possible to get a partial view of Haru-no-taki from our virtual tour of One Ridge which is above Super course.

Hoping to get some better shots later in the day headed back down the hill and shot this clip – not much snow left in the village.

Later in the day the clouds disappeared so rode back up the hill for a better view.
