it was about a 4 hour round trip, the difficult part was breaking trail in 30cm deep powder which ive never done before.

a few mount rishiri videos coming soon.

we have had some brutal weather, windy, white, cold, tiny bit of sun.

but the skiing has been incredible.

Its been very difficult to take good pics on Rishiri due to the brutal weather.

Its snowing heavily today, so we will be limited again on what we can do. We are catching the ferry back tomorrow and off to asahidake
