Tsugaike Kogen / ◎246cm / Snow Clouds2022.Jan.14

22011401_tsugaikeLast night’s storm ended up dumping the highest snowfall of the season so far! Unfortunately, snow removal and safety checks were hampered by strong winds, and at the scheduled 8:00 start time the only lift operating was the gondola; from base to mid-station. I set my sights on the resort’s steep, lower slope Champion to bag some fresh tracks in powder, and was on the Champion Quad (pictured) when it opened at 9:00.

The snow felt a little heavy from being blasted by the strong winds overnight, but I still very much enjoyed the feeling of floating on fresh POW. Everyone was amped up, including those watching from the lift chairs – who where who cheering as skiers and boarders laid down tracks below them.

(※You couldn’t rely on your poles to support your efforts since they would just in to snow.) The groomed portion of Champion, covering around 1/3 of the total slope area, had around 15cm of new snow covering a soft base. The remaining ungroomed areas all seemed to have around 60 to 70cm.
