Snow to village (Niseko) - in absentia 09/10

Recommended Posts

Wanted to do a post for MikePow - "Fortune favors the Brave"


Yesterday with my buddy Chico at around 7:30 we hiked up the Hirafu Resort to the the top of the the Ace quad lift.


The Sun was off and on but the pow was looking and feeling good, about 40 -50 cm at the base of Alpen








We pushed on and as we got higher the weather turned and it started snowing heavily - luckily this Hirafu staff member passed us on his sled and made a sweet trail for us up the switch back




Made it to the top of Alpen and it was COLD up there - 8 on the big daddy thermometer / 60 + cm




so then we dropped...not the easiest riding, the snow was light and deep but not much base...well none actually but Chico smashed it anyways








The lower we got the better it was where the groomers had been mown - straight lining it was the order of the day




All in all awesome to get some turns in and can't wait for a base to form....but hey pow is pow and on the 3rd of Nov pow is WOW !!

Welcome Jishipi. Great photos and I am so jealous.


But anyway, I edited the post as there were a few display problems. If you look under each photo once you have uploaded there is a View URL link. Click on that to get the URL of a photo and then you can put that onto the Forums using  before and after it. If you edit the above post you will see the code.


If you have any questions please do let me know.
