My second day of snowboarding was also excellent. I met up with a bunch of aussies I chatted to on the night I arrived. This worked out really well, as they had worked out what bus to catch to get to the ski fields at the far end. So we went up Mount Shibotage, the highest mountain in the Shiga Kogen area. It was pretty good. There were quite a few areas that were skiing only, but I still had a good time.

On the way back we got off at a sky rope thing, a very large gondolla that crossed the valley. From there we skiied up and down, and up, and eventually managed to get all the way back to the Ichinose family area, just up the road from the hotel. It:s very impressive that the only place you can't reach by skiing and lifts is Shibotage. Pretty much the rest of the entire resort can be reached by traversing across the hills.

My shoulder was a bit tender from my stack on the ramp yesterday, but I was pleased with how it was feeling by the end of the day. It doesn't seem to be as injured as I had feared.

I've got one more full day of snowboarding. I'm looking forward to it.
