It was snowing in Niseko again this morning.
The hotel was also in the clouds of snow.
Curry with rice is served at hotel breakfast buffets recently.
The operation status of the gondolas and lifts at the Niseko Ski Resort areas was displayed in the hotel lobby, but there was no Niseko Moiwa Ski Resort information although it's only next to the hotel. The four major resorts are connected near the top of the mountain, but today the lifts above were all suspended due to a snowstorm.
Niseko Moiwa Ski Resort, adjacent to the hotel, is a small ski resort not connected to other resorts. It is a ski resort with abundant snowfall and is described as "a hideaway in Niseko" and has a long history in Niseko. It started around 1919, and at that time there was no lift and skiers climbed the mountain for several hours then slided, and it was a ski resort with an old-fashioned scent.
Snowstorm today, but it was rather crowded with skiers. It has a family atmosphere and is easy to get close to, and looks good for starting ski practices.
Grand Hirafu, the largest ski resort in Niseko.
Children played in the family ski area.
Went to Niseko HANAZONO Ski Resort, which has recently undergone remarkable development and is aiming to become an all-season resort.
Shuttle bus services are available is in Hirafu and Hanazono. The services are very convenient. A requirement for an international ski resort is it should be enjoyable for both skiers and non-skiers. Niseko has become a world class winter resort, boasting powder snow that is highly praised by passionate skiers and others. The key is to maintain international standards and continue to evolve. Hirafu and Hanazono, despite developed by different capitals, seem to be working together to improve their facilities.
On the way back from Niseko, the road was covered with snow spray and whiteout conditions. The Sasson Ecpressway and Shiribeshi Expressway were closed again that day.
Returned to Sapporo. It was not a long drive, but driving on the icy roads took a long time. On the way back, went to a famous ramen restaurant "Hachinoki", visited in August.
A restaurant became independent from the famous restaurant "Sumire". There are only four menu items: miso, soy sauce, salt, and Chinese noodle.
Soy sauce ramen. The soup was full of flavor that soaked the tired body, and the glutinous noodles were delicious. Ate up it without worrying about the salt content, and was happy to see the words "Thank you" at the bottom of the bowl.
Miso ramen. The yellow condiment was ginger. The powerful soup stock, the firm and shrunken noodles, the melting pork, the crisp bean sprouts, and the bamboo shoots are all a perfect match.
Realized the quality of ramens in Sapporo is really high.
