Winter Family Vacation-Japan

Our winter family vacation this year was across the world on the island of Hokkaido Japan.  We started at the Kiroro Resort outside of Sapporo, home of the 1972 Winter Olympics.

Why Kiroro?  According to their marketing information:

“Kiroro is a place for people who carve a different path. Uncompromised, unspoiled and undiscovered. Kiroro is Five Star snow and lush summer forests in pristine Japanese wilderness. In Kiroro, the winter valleys are the snowiest on earth and the best place to learn to ski powder. The summer forests are abundant with nature and adventure for your family to explore and find your perfect selves. Kiroro is quality over quantity, warm welcomes, attention to detail, excellence at every turn. Explore beyond the obvious. Seek somewhere special. Kiroro. Five Star by Nature”

 

The snow was so dry you could not even form a snowball!  I did not do any backcountry powder skiing, however I did enjoy groomed runs in the fluffy snow at Kiroro!  Maybe in the future I will be ready to strap on some skins and ski the powder!
