Too much snow in Hakuba

Hakuba Ski Trip
Woke up to see a thick blanket of snow.

We were one of the latest group to head for breakfast, everyone was already half way through their breakfast in their ski wear. We were still in our yukatas.

Back to our room to change….

Luckily the bus stop was just right next to our bed and breakfast place, though it wasn’t too punctual so we had to wait in the falling snow. Won’t be too bad if you are wearing waterproof ski clothing but I wasn’t.

Snow! Snow! Snow!

Getting our rentals.

Since I suck at skiing so We decided to go for snow walk hiking instead. You can either join snow shoe guided tours or choose to walk by yourselves. However, not recommended on bad blizzard day as most of the hiking routes would be closed which we didn’t know. You got to rent snowboarding snows, stokes and snow shoes.

I haven’t gone on a “ski” trip with nice sunny weather, I always meet up with such blizzardy weather which really sucks.

The only part of the woods which was open for hiking but the snow was so thick that it nearly reached our knee so it was really difficult.

I was so ready to give up but Sushi san kept pushing me on. He say it is not economical to stop since we had already paid so much to come up here. *slave driver!*

Hakuba Ski Trip
Freaking tiring and the snow pounding on my face wasn’t a great feeling. I just hope the next time I am going for ski trip next, please give me some nice soft powder and bright sun, ok?
