I planned to ride a subway,

but I ate this much for lunch. I had a little time to the next meeting, and I chose riding a bike rather than a subway.

Omotesando-Ningyocho 13:44-14:25

I needed to walk almost 1km to the nearest cycle port.
Running through Roppongi,

and the Imperial Palace.

Arrived at Ningyocho in 50 minutes.

I don't think I could consume the high calories I ate for lunch, but it was a nice breeze riding.

The queueing for the gondola lift was the longest I have ever seen.
There were many groups at the trail head.


Reached to the ridge in 40 minutes.

We shoveled to check the weak layer. Awesome descent.

Then we went to the other ridge.


Light and deep powder.

We came back almost exactly the same time of the last time,

and I could catch one earlier train to Tokyo.

I went to Skyline for the first, but the visibility was very poor.
I could some how manage going down, but it was very difficult.
Today I was on telemark skies.

It's been almost two years since last time in the resort, and this is almost the first time after the surgery. I tried Skyline twice, one ride on Panorama, two rides on Riesen, but it was enough in the fog.

Good to ride on the telemark skies again.

After the skiing I walked to the cafe for breakfast.

Today the cafe was not busy.

Then I walked home.

The powder remained after 10 a.m.
