Annupuri Day

This morning, we awoke early to take the bus to Annupuri as the upper lift was closed to connect Higashiyama to Annupuri. It was a fantastic day! For the morning, we took the Gondola many times to the near top. Here, I'm with Joseph and Jacques Sock.

We met up with the Stewart Family who now address GQ as El Presidente...
The four boys are Jackson, Christian, Benji and Sammy

One of the highlights was dining at the buffet which was so delicious! I ate one too many cream puffs and had two lattes!
Oops - I also had vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce and crunchy topping.
Hot Socks was doing great today on the slopes! She followed GQ through the trees.
GQ was snowboarding with the boys as it snowed all day long!
The Annupuri gondola closes at 3:45pm so we rode that all day and then transitioned to the hooded quad until 5:30pm.
Night skiing started around 4pm and it was wonderful with better visibility and great slopes for the whole group!
Little Miss Sunshine and I had a great full day of skiing. Today, we ventured out with a group of 17 total! Tomorrow, we'll ski in Hirafu again.
We finished the day with takeout kebabs from Elvis for dinner, ghetto popcorn (microwave popcorn mixed with melted snickers, honey, cashews and milk) to get the group dancing to "Dancing Queen". Mitchell Bear and Joseph had to dance in order to have a bite and a few games of liars dice and hearts.
We'll probably head back to Annupuri for New Year's Eve for another amazing session of food, snow and adventure.
