Skiing Down Mount Racey

Mount Racey, the ski resort immediately visible from Yubari Station. (The building in the photo is the hotel 20 steps from the station.)

When I was there in late February, snow conditions were great and despite the Yubari Fantastic Film Festival going on, there were hardly any skiers. The plus was that you could have a practically private skiing session. For such a spontaneous decision (so spontaneous I went skiing in corduroy jeans), it was a remarkably easy experience.

The slopes were lit in three different light tints, making each and every groove in the snow more visible.
