What’s happening today
Although we have not had a lot of new snow in the last 24 hours we have have quite a bit of wind especially at higher elevations which means deep wind blown powder stashes can be found amongst the trees. Hanazono ski ground is where we are heading today, a few high speed turns down the freshly groomed Yotei Sunset run and will then look for wind blown stashes off Renraku , Crystal Dream and Legend of Shinya.
Mizu no Sawa
If you haven’t had the chance to check out Mizu no Sawa at Niseko Village definitely worth a look here are a few images from earlier in the week.
Mt. Yotei has been looking very nice and can’t wait to get up there soon – saw some very nice lines up there Monday afternoon.
