The Hakuba 2012 season has officially started!!
I arrived at Goryu to find all 3 car parks completely full. Obviously the word had got out. The Weather couldn’t have been better with stunning views once up on top. The base was about 50cm with the runs packed powder and the sides sported 20cm of nice powder with the temperatures staying below zero all morning.
All the locals were out in force and everyone was enjoying the stunning opening day!
After a fine morning of snowboarding and drinking coffee in the panorama cafe, It was time for the after party.
Liberty skis had their 2012 season opening party with free BBQ, beers, local hip hop dancing team and prize draw.The lucky winner got a pair of 2012 Liberty powder skis. Thanks to Joe and Tomoko for the good times!
Here’s to a fantastic 2012 winter season!
