the views of Fuji from the beach has been awesome this past week. Yesterday on the way to work, looking out the train window with a snow capped Fuji was a nice distraction

Missed the Niseko opening last weekend but the lure of Kurodake's opening on the 20th was too much

Jumped on the the ropeway with a small crew and 7 mins later it was ON.



After a couple runs the opening ceremony kicked in which was pretty quick this year - 10 mins later it was back on.



Great conditions up there a meter + and cold. Wasn't expecting awesome powder but thats what the handful of people up there for the day got. The sun even came out after a few hours.....i love Kurodake !!!

Many people there?

Good to see people having fun. I'm working. Even on a national holiday. Who can I complain to.

working myself, or at least finishing up making final exams. A bad day on snow beats a good day in the office! Thanks for the pics and making me angry wink

The snow on the upper mountain will last it out. The lower slopes will certianly suffer though. Still very early in the season and hardly unusual to get rain in November.
