A blue-bird day on Mt Youtei.
The weather couldn’t be better. Yes, you could ask for 30cm of fresh a night so we can all ski pow in the resort, but the sun has given us the opportunity for some great back country days.
We hit Youtei this week with a small group of us. Joey, Oscar and Watkin and I on a perfect blue bird day….
This is what we saw…
Youtei's Crater - untracked perfection.
First Line into the crater - Bevan and Yuki (the dog)!
Does this need a caption?
The view back to Annupuri
Ski in - ski out.
Watkin, switching it up into the crater.
Watkin. luvin' it.
Watkin's first two hits into the crater. Bevan and Yuki's line (right)
Watkin - a casual Japan 3.
Yuki - frothing on freshies.
Summiting - and thinking about an ice axe purchase!
Dropping in... two?
Joey - sending it.
The 'nar zone.
Trekking out from the crater.

A sweet day on top of Youtei.
