Yesterday we had two guests from the British Isles come visit the Mecca of the Snow Country. What you see on the tree above them is the total accumulation of snow to date near Half Moon Lake. On the ski slopes of Hirafu there is much more snow and even more is expected over the next few months of the season.
The last part of the decent is a long steep slide to the shore of the lake. The powder snow was easily sweep off after coming down the slide.
On the return leg of the journey we enjoyed creating our own white-outs amongst the evergreens.
