Another snowy photoshoot for you. As I mentioned in the previous post, Hakuba (白馬) is one of the ski resorts in Japan and there are seven main ski areas in Hakuba. This time I went to Hakuba Goryu (白馬五竜).
Took a night bus from Shinjuku. Lots of people prefer to take the night bus because of the low cost.
Arrived early in the morning, looked around, and saw only Subway opened at that time !
Couples can write their name on it and hang it up at the entrance.
It's still early in the morning but lots of people already started.
First time for Danbo to see the snow. He was very excited to see the snow.
Danbo always wanted to make a Snow Angel.
I picked ski this time. I'd never skied before and wanted to try it.
Happy faces before hitting the slopes
I spent my morning trying to learn skiing properly. Had lots of quality time falling. Managed to learn the "pizza" technique and try beginner trail a few time before lunch.
Food here is what you would expect for a ski resort. Edible.
Lovely view from the restaurant.
Danbo couldn't find the right size for him.
A little bit too heavy for Danbo.
Danbo is all set and ready for skiing.
Map of Hakuba Goryu and Hakuba 47. You could go to Hakuba 47 from the top.
Determined to get a good photos from the top, this time I brave myself riding the gondola to the top while bringing my camera.
The gondola takes you to the top where
From the top, people looked so tiny like a miniature.
Finally arrived at the top.
Scary course is scary.
The view from the top, however, is really nice.
Ended up with lots of muscle pain at the end of the day. I will probably switch back to snowboard next time.
Happy Monday, folks !
