Unexpectedly the sun came out today, so we decided to give Asahidake a try. But being the highest mountain of Hokkaido, the volcano is exposed to high winds and we had to turn around halfway on the summit ridge. No hard feelings at all, it was a great experience to feel totally alive with the elements of pure nature all around us. And, the good thing was: we could get in some more powderturns.
