This time, This is an introduction to ski resorts where you can ski while looking out at the Sea of Okhotsk.
"Esashi Town Mikasayama Ski Resort"
Esashi-cho is a place where drift ice comes only in winter, and if you are lucky, you can ski while watching the drift ice!Then, when I got the information that the drift ice was coming to Okhotsk, I headed for Esashi.
Scenery on the way to the ski resort
Drift ice is floating in the sea on the way to the ski resort.The tension went up and I got out of the car and went sightseeing for a while.It was @Yo Amagai of "Niseko Down Chill Crew" who participated in the drift ice slope.

When I arrived at the ski resort, I could see the sea from the lift.

However, when I thought that the clouds were approaching a little, I couldn't see the sea.disappointing.I saw it a little, so it's better than I couldn't.And comfort yourself.

By the way, Mikasayama Ski Resort is an easy-to-understand layout with a total of XNUMX courses, from the sea side to advanced, intermediate, beginner, and forest courses with gentle slopes.

First, let's get used to the "intermediate course".The gnoll condition of the first terrain is interesting.The side of the branch with the advanced level has a slightly complicated terrain.The last is open burn
It's hard to see, but the Noor terrain at the beginning of the course

The "advanced course" was a fairly high course due to the slope, but as expected, RIDER glide by picking up the terrain at a constant speed and beautifully.

Guffy terrain is also picked up firmly.
There is a regular wall on the way to the "Beginner Course", but the next one is a gentle slope, so I played while trying not to slow down too much.

The forest course is really a gentle slope.Be careful as the last slope is slightly up!

When I asked the ski resort people about the drift ice after skiing, they said, "It's been a while since I berthed, so there isn't much drift ice on this day."Even so, I was happy because I could see it when I went to the ski resort, but I wanted to see it while skiing at the ski resort.
This time it was "Esashi Town Mikasayama Ski Resort" where I wanted to revenge the sunny and drift ice.If you have a chance, please come!
I will paste the drift ice image taken by Mikasayama Ski Resort on the last ~
