Some of our group in action - pursuit of Ron
Ready for skiing action - posers on the slopes.
Hokkaido weather - a bit cloudy today. But Great Niseko skiing on the upper slopes.
More Niseko weather. 2007 was less snow than normal - but still good quality.
Nabe is best shared. Hokkaido's seafood nabe specialty.
Our Group - what a team - after a hot Onsen bath.
Celebrating the day's accomplishments in the great outdoors - with Kirin beer. Kanpai!
Healthy dinner after skiing adventures.
Team photo -- skiers tackling Niseko. Oh yeah, and 2 snowboarders.
Mt. Yotei near Niseko. Yes, it's a volcano.
Leo here - just kicking back. Ski slopes were soft so comfortable resting. The Niseko snow is excellent quality.
Leo again - ready to dive into action on Niseko's Hanazono course.
Just a shot of the Welcome Center. Helpful for Niseko guests. They organize your bus coming and goings.
Wow -- cool. Let's do it again. (Winter skiing in Niseko)
Good sunshine means good visibility. February weather was a good mix of new snow, cold, but occasional sunshine so we could warm up a bit.
