This time last year we were up in Hakuba staying at my brother’s house. The snow had just started falling and for the next three days we were experiencing the heaviest snow storm to hit the area in over 20 years.
Since then I’ve been up and stayed about 6 or 7 times taking the dogs and my bikes up there whenever I had more than 4 days off.
This winter I don’t have the money to spend on tolls, ski lifts and all the rest that comes with skiing so waiting till early spring to go up there again. Even if I wanted to go up now, it is being rented out as a lodge to families and is almost booked out.
I love riding around all the hill climbs up there and am looking forward to going up there soon.
I may even take some people up in summer and do some kind of cycling tour.
