snowboarding in the white sky*


I went snowboarding with my husband on second and third of January.
The small ski resort where we went to has only three lifts. In addition there weren’t much
people there and it looked like money-losing.
The ski resort is called Miyagi Zao skiing area sumikawa Snow park.
I heard this year is the 50th anniversary for this ski resort. So it has a long history but
also lifts have a long history.
It is on the top of the high mountain. So snow was very rich smooth fresh deep snow
but also snowstorm was very strong.
When we walk as usual, we almost flied with our snowboard.
Our hands got stiff when we got to the top of the mountain because all lifts moved slowly.
Sometimes things that we were able to see were only white color. So I lost my balance
sense and I fell over.
We started to snowboard from the afternoon when we got there to the finishing time of
lifts. But I had been wanting to soak in hot spring all the time.

It sounds like you had a fun time snowboarding. I have heard that the mountains in Japan have excellent snow and the mountains there are great for skiing or snowboarding. Maybe one day I will get to visit Japan to snowboard!

Hi David!
Thank you for your comment:)
In the north of Japan there is excellent snow.
I recommend you to go to Hokkaido.
I'm going to Hokkaido tomorrow:)
Oh, I'm looking forward to snowboarding there and going to incredible hot spring!

Hi linda!
Thank you for saying that:)
Do you snowboard or ski?
