Photo from Higashiama gondola looking towards the Prince Hotel

Went shopping last night in Kutchan and found a great grog shop – stocked up for the next week. The weather was not so bad today (a balmy -12 deg). We found some untracked, thigh deep powder this morning and had a ball – lots of girl squeals from Cathy. Had morning tea in the plush lounge of the Prince Hotel in Higashiama – it seems all wrong to walk into the place covered in snow and wearing ski boots. More skiing at Annupuri in soft powdery snow but thigh burn eventually stopped us. Lunch at the new Annupuri restaurant …. $17 all you can eat buffet. Had trouble skiing home with the extra weight.

Sitting at home now with a cold can of Asahi beer, looking at the snow falling outside the window – life is good.
