David came around today after a bout of paragliding with some aerial shots he’d taken of the lodge.
After taking off from the top of Happo he circled around for a while and took some great shots of the Hakuba valley. Above you can see the Wadano and Happo area with the Morino roof poking through the trees. The Happo runs are on the right hand side of the picture. Below is video footage of a 360 loop. First you can see Happo, followed by Iwatake, Hakuba 47 and then back to Happo again. Near the end David hits a thermal and suddenly rockets upwards!
