Happy Hakuba Holidays

Hisashiburi! Did you miss us?  It’s that time of year again… the middle of January and we are just getting around to posting our first blog of the season!  But can you blame us for being a tad tardy?  Heaps of fresh snow with consistent cold temps has given us plenty of powder to play in.  Who wants to sit in front of the computer when you can be out enjoying what’s shaping up to be another fantastic winter season in Hakuba!?

Morino has also busy welcoming some new additions to the family!  Alana and Pat are our new in-house chefs cooking up a storm at Wadano and Morino Cafe and taking our Christmas dinner to another level.  Mathieu hails from tropical Reunion Island, but has enthusiastically taken to the snow… even the shoveling!  Michiko, our genki-est staff ever is back, and brought her friend Konomi to join in on the fun at the lodge.

Last, but certainly not least are two tiny additions:

Maika Joy Oldring born Sept 21st 2010

Hanna Abigael Dunn born Christmas Eve, 2010

Thanks to all of our awesome guests and staff for making yet another Morino Christmas to remember!  And to the rest of the Morino family out there… stay tuned for more blogs and photos to come!
