This was our apartment block at 7:30 this morning after another night of heavy snow
Over a metre of snow fell last weekend and the temperatures are staying between -10 and -20 so the skiing has been just incredible – the best I have ever experienced. Just check out some of the photos Cathy took of me today. We are getting first tracks each day and skiing ourselves to a standstill by about 2 pm …… home for a hot bath, cold beer and nap.
I think I may have broken Cathy ….. her ski legs are now just jelly and she probably wont ski tomorrow (our last day).
We had a great meal last night with all the others (now called the Grizwalds) at a Japanese restaurant called “Rin”.
Mark had a day exploring the town of Hirafu today – he is having a great time just soaking up the atmosphere here.
No injuries to report today. Susan Carmody is now OK – just a slight ligament tear … she is still mobile, unlike Sue Morrell, who is now officially a cripple. The insurance company arranged for the Morrells to shift accommodation to the 5 star Alpen Hotel, so she is now enjoying some luxury while Tony is boarding with use ….. no losers there.
As I am writing this blog, on my bed, looking out the window, Mt Yotei has now appeared, bathed in sunshine. This place is simply amazing.
Just another powder day in Niseko
