It’s cloudy this morning. A big earth quake happened last night in Atsuma which is about 300 km away from Niseko. Niseko was shook a bit. Better not to go to Sapporo today to avoid confusion.
I hiked up to Mt. Yotei yesterday. The sky was blue and no wind so it was so fun to hike. After 3 hours of hiking, we reached the tree line. Above the tree line, snow looked like super icy due to strong wind from last couple of days. So we decided to stop there and drop in. Snow was surprisingly great and fast. I love Mt. Yotei because I can have longest amazing run in Niseko!
I still can’t see the next snow fall but I believe it will come…
