The weekend of the 11th was a three-day weekend, so we decided to go snowboarding again to take advantage of it. We went with Scott, Brandt, and Mizuki again, though this time Ken couldn’t come. They had been snowboarding again in the interval between when we all went to Joetsu Kokusai and this time, so while for Kenji and I we were going to Joetsu Kokusai again, for them it was just another choice.

The day was a snowy one in the morning, and pretty chilly, in contrast to the last time we went. We geared up for cold and headed out:

Luckily it cleared up a bit by lunch time

Poor Kenji forgot his contacts, though, so he had to wear sunglasses even while it was snowing

After a filling lunch of curry, we went up for another run or two before leaving, but ended up finding a spot to goof off about halfway down:

Awww, cute aren’t we? You’d never guess I tackled him, and we then had a tackle-each-other-into-the-snow fight, huh?

The day by the end…

Exhausted from all that tackling! Also, Kenji pushed me ;p

Kenji the explorer

His position was then taken advantage of by the rest of the group, who quickly set up fort for a snowball fight!

MAN DOWN!

Scott goes in for a kill…

Only to have A NEW PLOT ARISE! The others turn on him!

Meanwhile Kenji frolicks in the snow…

…only to get stuck hip deep in a bank and beg his girlfriend to rescue him. (see, he smiles like that ’cause he wants something…)

While Brandt laughs at his pain, MWAHAHAHAHA.

An hour later, we finally get down the mountain and hit the onsen which felt SO NICE! Ahhhhhh, just the thought of it makes me want to go back….

Anyway, maybe another post from last year coming that I never wrote. I’m sick with a cold though so I make no promises!
