You know the rules, pics or it didn't happen
Probably the day of the trip, bluebird, still day (so warm despite the -8c the app said on wake up).
We got on the road at 9am, and despite both google maps and Maps.me having a case of the wobbles on departure we managed to make it all the way to the parking area by East Station! I swear there was only 10 cars in the car park. We worried we weren't allowed to stay/that it was maintenance /staff parking.
We grabbed a couple of 4hr passes and caught the gondola to the West side first up. (To note we didn't realise having been on 50hr passes at Niseko, that 4hrs started immediately from your first scan, in this case at West #2 Quad)
Strangely the West Gondola wasn't operating (no gondola's on the line at all) so we high tailed it to West #2 Quad. Smashed a super fast run on dynamic and YK decided that he would turn on ski tracks to see how fast he could get. The second run had a few more people around but he managed 85.4!
The snow was device, the perfect groomer, powder snow combo that's gives off roaster tails off twin tips! Hadn't coped them in the face all trip!
We went up West Tiger Chair but sadly the quality of snow was not great. It wasn't much better than dust on crust. So we headed back to the Gondola and started to head towards Mt Isola and the Heavenly runs.
oh my oh my!
This was divine!
The snow quality was ah-mazing! Not very deep, but freshies for days. And super fun!
So we basically lapped the Isola #3 quad for a couple of hours. Mixing up routes each lap.
We did a hot lap of #4 and Heavenly view then headed up #3 and made our way back to East centre where we just had time for one last lap on East quad before skiing pretty much back to the car. I stopped ski tracks at 4hrs 39secs!

One of the last runs of the day Isola - a
So YK got 85.5
And our day
