Awesome breakfast buffet, short bus ride to Hakuba, lunch and then some spring-like shred at Hakuba Cortina right outside our doorstep! We’re staying at the crazy-looking Hotel Green Plaza that could have been a castle in a fairytale. Our copter pilot Christoffer got so excited when he was the building in sunlight and with beautiful dramatic Japanese alps in the background that he rigged his heli and took it out for a spin to film it.
It’s nice to finally get to see some real mountains again after the more flat terrain up at Hokkaido. Looks really promising for tomorrow when we plan to go to an area called Happo One here in Hakuba.
When I walked in from skiing I got surprised-attacked by Wille and the rest of my crew that were here skiing today!! Sooo awesome to see them again!! They are staying in the Happo area so hopefully we can meet up tomorrow again!
