Here we go, 1 December 2015

Yesterday Niseko Grand Hirafu and Niseko Annupuri opened for the start of the 2015-16 season. We checked out Niseko Grand Hirafu. The skiing and boarding was limited to Center course mid mountain but the coverage was pretty good. There is still a crazy amount of sasa ( bamboo ) and undergrowth around making any kind of off course action pretty much impossible. Patience required.

None the less awesome to get back on the mountain and put a few turns in. It shouldn’t be too long before more terrain opens up after the next couple of dumps.

So, in the meantime checkout the vid and images below and stay tuned for the first faceshots of the 2015-16 season. Yeehaw.
