Hakkoda review by Tlen
Group of six skiers and one boarder up from Tokyo on Sat morning flight; on the mountain by 10:30. Guided by the Man, Souman san, we got in 3 gondola runs before 15:15 on Saturday.

Sunday, took off on the 09:15 gondola and came back down at 12:00 for lunch after a series of skinning sessions to get to freshies with the last run an absolute dream. After lunch, another big skinning session to get to more freshies and then back down to get packed up and off to the aeroport.

A great trip, easy to do from Tokyo. Hat's off to Souma san, smiles all around!
Date visited: From 30 January, 2010 To 31 January, 2010
Snow condition on visit: Good base, dusting 5cm new
Things I liked: All off piste, few boarders, backcountry experience
Things I didn't like: Difficult to do without guide to 1.)guide and 2.) transport back to
