Just a few quirky moments from this week on the mountain…
Yes, there is still powder left to be had out there, and we were happy to go find it… everywhere! Round 2 of winter has been an absolute blast. Can’t wait til the skies unleash once again.
Winter has caught a second wind and blessed us with yet another bluebird powder day! We did more riding than taking pictures yesterday. It was too epic to stop!
It’s been snowing hard here in Hakuba, and the Morino crew all got on the slopes early to enjoy some fresh lines. The 25 new centimeters came in a little heavy, but still heaps of fun to ride! Keigo and I took a detour that had us crossing a river a few times and trudging through thigh-deep snow for ages. Well, knee-deep snow to you non-midget types. I suppose you have to sweat a little for your powder every once in a while. Whatever it takes to keep the powder gods happy!
In the meantime, those dieties of frozen vapour have us all looking skyward and returning those smiles. The snow is still coming down steadily, only lighter and fluffier now. Another fresh 30 or 40 by tomorrow morning? Fingers crossed. I’m glad to see this season still has some goodies in store for us powder hounds. Woo hoo!!!
March is here and the snow predictions for this week look sick! Our home in Hakuba is as beautiful as ever with fresh snow on the ground and plenty more powder days to come!
