We went skiing today.  This is Sapporo Bankei Ski Area, only 20 minutes

from downtown Sapporo.

It was a fine day and we could command a view of Sapporo city

from the top of the mountain.

Our first ski of the season was in late December at Mt Racey Ski Resort in Yubari.

It was a perfect day for skiing, as you can see in the picture above.

The view was awesome.

Also the quality of snow was excellent!!

This season is really good for skiers, because this winter we have an _unusual_

amount of snow in Hokkaido!
