Winter Picture Dreaming




We will present to you some of the images of what a winter picture is in our minds. These scenes come from locations around the world. Some are skiable destinations, and some places are there mainly to be admired. We will continue to do this, as often pictures speak a thousand words. May this get you into the winter mood.



Hakuba Valley in Japan     We will start with the forgotten Japan, Hakuba valley. If you are looking for the steepest terrain to ski out of Japan’s 600 ski resorts, this is it. This place is 65 min by coach from Nagano.
