Taking a break from our usual snowboarding turf, my friend and I decided to check out Naeba Ski Resort. Just on the other side of the mountains from where I live, Naeba occupies a sleepy corner of Yuzawa in Niigata prefecture.

Multiple ski resorts host thousands of skiers and Snowboarders who drive in from all sections of Japan. We had the good fortune of spending two great days riding under perfect blue skies.
