Cross-country skiing in Onuma Prince Hotel/歩くスキーin 大沼プリンス
I went to Onuma Prince Hotel's cross-country ski course the other day.
Course : 3km & 5km condition is good and course is wide enough for two peopel skiing side by side Ski rental fee: 1,000 yen for a set(ski, boots and stocks) Course fee : 500yen Others: You can ask to use hot spring bath of the hotel. If you want, you need to extra 500yen. The hotel provides you a bath towel and washing towel. From twelve to three in the afternoon, the large communal bath rooms are no available to use for cleaning.
When I went there, I made two rounds of 3km course. I could find many foot-prints of foxes. According to guests staying at the hotel, they could see foxes and squarrels there from the hotel building and while they were skiing. It sounds great!!
A few days later, I went back the course again and took 5 km course. It was great! The photo above was taken on the way from 5 km couse to 3 km course. I could see Mt. Komagatake clearly and found various footprints of squirrels, foxes, and hares.
