Winter days of Hokkaido / 北海道デイズ

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019!!!!

Hi Guys, it’s finally winter here in Hokkaido! It’s my 3rd winter season here in Hokkaido and also my first winter since i moved to Sapporo City. I’m starting to get used to it.

やっと冬だ!!!今回は北海道に僕の3回目の冬ですのでどんどん寒さになれてました。

Some of the most popular places to ski and Snowboard in Hokkaido are for example Niseko and Rusutsu. It has great powder snow there from January to March. It’s also my favorite, though it is a bit far from Sapporo.

冬ならやっぱスキーとかスノーボードですね。北海道にスキーとスノーボードの人気のところなら例えばニセコとかルスツなどだと思います。札幌からちょっと遠いけど1月から3月末まではパウダースノーがとてもいいです。

Near Sapporo city there are also some places you can try skiing or just play in the snow such as Mt.Moiwa Ski course, Banke Ski area, etc. It’s not far from the City center.

札幌の近くでしたら藻岩山スキー場とかバンケイスキー場は一番近いです。

It gets dark at around 16:00 here in winter, so time feels kinda fast. For those who are not used to snowy places, be careful when you walk because the ground is slippery and if the temperature rise up above zero, some of the snow will turn to ice which will make the road very very very slippery. Sometimes it gets so cold that I just want to hibernate at home like a polar bear.

冬に16時ぐらいはもう暗くなりますので、時間の流れが速く感じます。雪が降るところが慣れてない方は気を付けてください。道が滑りやすくなります。温度が0度より上がったら積もってる雪が氷になってもっともっと滑りやすくなります。たまに部屋で布団の中で冬眠したいです。
