Enduring the wind, snow refuses to let go and has formed little cocoon shapes on several branches. You can see this on many trees around the resort. Nature really is a curious beast, isn't?
The Northern Alps shrouded in clouds. A fantastic view.
The snow glitters prominently in the few places where the sun manages to break through the clouds.
Will the constant broadcasts of Olypmic snowboarding events raise awareness of the sport and invite more people to give it a go? I hope so! Our terrain parks are always welcoming to new arrivals!
Restaurant Alice has now soft cream on its menu. There's plenty to chose from! I think I'll try the apple flavour a go tomorrow.
As the aftermath of the recent 'snowpocalypse' is slowly becoming a thing of a past, the number of visitors is steady rising once again. Rejoice! The slopes today were full of life, unlike a few days ago when this place could easily be mistaken with a ghost town. The weather and temperature too were top notch, providing a great day to be out on the slopes.
As promised, the newly reconstructed terrain park is open from today. Tried of watching all those Olympics snowboarding event on TV? Have a go at our park and experience it first hand!
A snow rafting school trip? I wish my schools trips were as cool as this!
Snow rafting is definitely one of the most exciting outdoors sports. The thrill of rafting down with clouds of snow surrounding is simply an unforgeable experience. If you have the time (and the guts!) do certainly have a go!
The enormous amount of snowfall in the country over the last few weeks has prevented many of our customers getting into Hakuba. Starting from today things are slowing returning to normal, with the roads opening up and the shinkansen running as it used to. Business was awfully slow until yesterday but from now on we are expecting to see more and more people, especially students because of the winter school break.
The terrain make is having a litte make over right now. Check back tomorrow to see what new surprises we have in store for you guys!
Today's meal recommendation is this juicy steak plate available at Restaurant Carol. 200g steak with a lovely Japanese style garlic sauce. This might seem like a mouthful but keep in mind that if you ride a lot, you need to eat a lot too!
