The importance of walking
Get fit this Spring in Niseko
With the powder snow well behind us and yet the snow still covering most of the mountains many of us find this period a bit of lull point where we can be tempted to get a bit lazy.
There is some still some great opportunities for snow showing around Niseko with some great beginner hikes from the leaving from the Goshiki Onsen just behind Annupuri. So get out there and enjoy some of the magic views around Niseko.
Just a few hours walking each week has significant effects on your mental and physical health and also has been shown to improve sleep and even be a good treatment for mild to moderate depression. So strap on and get busy.
Be safe in Niseko
Just remember that if you are heading into the back country at any time you need to be prepared. Always take a friend, have somebody know your plans, take plenty of warm clothing and take adequate food and water supplies as well as asses avalanche risk.
Goshiki Onsen can be seen below and is also a great place to unwind afterwards !
