Buck Country: Day 2 - Kokusai

Around 2 hours from Niseko is the picturesque resort of Kokusai which, whilst accessed via a different approach, is very close to Kiroro geographically - in fact you could ski between the two resorts readily, with both of them granting access to an amazing amount of buck country options.
We took a day pass and registered with the authorities, and then spent the day skinning from the top of the gondy station up to the large range to the southwest before dropping down into various bowls and ridges and then looping back in to a valley returning to the resort.
Whilst the weather had come in a bit, the vis was still fine, and we got some stellar freshies in incredible snow.
We stopped on the way home at a very pretty outdoor onsen with a great curry house.
