Skiing at Niseko Day 3
Trip Start Jan 02, 2013
70Trip End Mar 17, 2013
I woke up late and with a headache from my slip on the ice yesterday. If the weather had been bad I probably would have taken the day off but the sun was out in the morning and it looked too good to pass up so I got ready and headed out to ski.
By the time I reached the mountain the sun had disappeared but it wasn't snowing and the lighting wasn't too bad. Mt. Yotei-zanI, often called the Mt. Fuji of Hokkaido, was visible all day. I just skied at Hirafu. Around 3:30 the lighting got bad so I called it a day. Between knowing the mountain a little better and the better conditions I got in around 8,000 meters of vertical, a bit more than the first two days.
