I have had my eye on today since earlier this week as it was always looking like it would clear up and be fab weather.
The question was.... where to go.
I found myself on the Kanetsu this morning going over to Minakami and the fantastically awesomely beautiful surroundings of Tanigawa, along with the always annoying ski-jo that is Tanigawadake Tenjindaira.
I'll put the rant in spoilers, as lots of it is similar to last year. And the year before. But it needs to be said!

So, fantastic blue skies this morning. Lots of 'ants' walking up the mountain. Yes, it's just beautiful up there.

Spoiler


In no particular order, all taken from within the skijo area.

Great photos. I was thinking about making a day trip from Kusatsu to there. However I think the lift issues would have me spitting the dummy and spoiling my day. Will have to day trip somewhere else instead.

Brilliant, muika.

Just proved how amazing the views are from up there.

Pity it's pretty much a rubbish skijo!

Why do they open so late, I wonder.

Perhaps they really are not bothered!

Fab photos of course.

Just to be clear, I was being extremely un-gnarly, stood inside course areas.

None of these hikers appear to be naked though, so obviously that's a few gnarly points taken off.

;)

Looks like you had a fine day muikabochi. Ii ne. :thumbsup:

As you can tell, some of the things about it really are irritating.
I don't do the hiking thing so for me the only reason to go here is the location and scenery, as it's just a really small place.
Perhaps they know people will go anyway for the hiking and the location, so they don't need to put any kind of effort into it.
I don't know, it's just odd.

Just once a year I think, on a day like today.

Looks like there's a few more places on there ready to crack and blow as well.
