Snowboard at Grandeco

Filed under: — Andy @ 10:57 pm

Some of my hiking friends and I took a 2-day snowboard trip to Grandeco in Fukushima. It had been three years since I last went snowboarding, so I was very out of practice. I was also extra careful not to get injured like last time, but I still ended up with quite a few bruises. The weather was nice both days and we were able to get plenty of boarding in as it was not very crowded.
We stayed the night at a Japanese ryokan in Nakanosawa Hot Springs village. It was a fairly cheap ryokan, but the food was decent and the hot springs was great. Plus, there was a sweets shop right across the street.

    Ski club cancels all trips to Mammoth.
    Water shortages loom.

  3. The link for the three year ago "Snowboard Trip to Nagano” was slightly defective on my computer and had to be modified by removing duplicate front end. Before that there was a four year ago snowboard trip. Consider an annual snowboard trip!
