December in photographs

Hokkaido Ski Club welcomed one of the best starts to the winter season ever seen. With record snowfalls across the northern Japanese island, including over 6 metres of snowfall in Niseko by the end of December, the team had plenty to get excited about. Below are some of the best moments from our private lessons, powder guiding experiences and photography services that we would like to share with you.
