Default Photos - Japan

Thanks Mojo,

I have dug out a couple of photos - unfortunately I didnt take too many on the mountain as we were too busy sliding

The hotel in Shiga Kogen

Lots of snow on the roof - walking allong the hallway was like standing inside a breaking wave as it froze and curled around

Calf deep by Lunchtime.
Standing on a (groomed) link run between hills - one of the few areas we had to unclip - at least we could stop and get a photo.

The trick was to watch the groomers start the night before work out which runs they did first so we could start on those in the morning- They had the most pow after it snowed all night. We found a number of these during the stay and had thigh/ass deep powder without leaving the runs.

From the top of Yakabitiyama (sp?) Shiga Kogen looking back over where we had come from - look closely and you can see the runs linking across into the hills in the distance.

Looking down at Furano town from the hill.
