What’s happening today

Today we are off to Niseko Annupuri for some classic high speed turns on the groomed runs. There will be a beautiful layer of fresh snow sitting on top of the piste and Utopia will be on, we’ll catch our breath on Panorama before launching ourselves down Dynamic.

We’ll take lunch at Del Sole and get some pizza from the wood fired oven. And tonight we are in for a real treat, eating lobster at The Barn.

Riding just two meters off the course you can often find the deep stuff.

    Ben , great website with so much good info, a 1 stop site. Can you provide your thoughts on outdoor onsens that are worth a visit while we are there, spent a lot of time last year down at green leaf.
    Any plans to include info on Mowia, Rusutshu or kirro on your site?

    • Hi Dean,

      We are so pleased you like the site. We are intending to publish our top five onsen soon, but in the mean time you should check out Yukichichibu that is a little worn inside but really nice outside or Goshiki that you can ride down to from the peak.

      We want to get more of the other resorts you mentioned but it will be towards the end of this season as we ideally need good weather and some free time!

      All the best,
      Ben
