Off to the Slopes

Morning at Grand Hirafu

Today we’re traveling to Hokkaido for a New Year ski holiday, which is silly because neither Tod nor I ski much. Last time I hit the slopes (quite literally, several times) was 1998 and I lasted half a day. Tod’s not skied in the entire eighteen years I’ve known him.

So this should be interesting. The area is renown for its superb powder skiing but I think we’ll mainly be cooking for the snow-bunny friends we’re accompanying, and soaking in hot onsen baths. The town is also famous for attracting many Australians, so I’m sure we’ll have a good time regardless of our activities.

P.S. I’d be very grateful if you would chant “no broken limbs” once a day through Jan 3rd, please.
