A trip to Sapporo would not have been complete without a trip to the slopes, so I decided to take myself off there and see if I could still remember how to snowboard - it had been about 8 years since I last did it! Luckily it was only an easy train and then bus ride away and the slopes were pretty empty, so I was able to amble along and take my time. The first few runs were pretty awful, accompanied by a lot of swearing, but I soon got the hang of it and it was great!

No action shots I'm afraid, just one of my mug on the chair lift.
The slopes were pretty empty and this one was nice and wide for my slow meandering boarding.
