Headed to Niseko, about 50 kilometers away. Niseko is close to Yoichi. When arrived, the snow stopped in the evening and the natural Christmas trees were beautiful.
One of the attractions of Niseko is its "powder snow heaven" with aspirin snow (snow has small grains and is free-flowing like aspirin crystals) of fresh snow. Among them, Niseko Grand Hirafu Ski Resort is the largest in the whole mountain of Niseko, and has the largest scale in Japan that can be enjoyed by beginners to advanced skiers and the world-class snow quality. There are 30 types of courses and the maximum slope is 40 degrees.
Skiing at night was pleasant just by looking at it. But skiers were sparse.
To Niseko Village Ski Resort. Forest courses where skiers go down in the primeval forest. A ski shop was open, so consulted with the staff about clothing and equipment for the next time.
The ski resort was cold and vacant.
The snowmen looked cold too.
Seicomart's wine shelves are substantial and located near the entrance. Bought 2 bottles of wine.
Stayed at a hotel with a kitchen for long-term guests. Recently, there are many take-outs, and it is convenient to have a kitchen, and the style of taking off shoes is safe and comfortable with barefoot.
Wine in a warm room while it snowed outside the hotel. Pomerol (red) and G7 Chardonnay (white) bought at Seicomart. Pomerol has a solid taste of Old World and does not contain stabilizers or acidulants. Hokkaido, where such wines are sold at normal convenience stores, is wonderful.
The shrimp rice gratin bought at "Towairaito" yesterday. The rich cream sauce goes well with not only Chardonnay but also Pomerol red wine.
Enjoyed a cheese in hamburger too.
The snow that began to fall was likely to continue until tomorrow morning.
