Seki Onsen: two lifts, no grooming
Seki Onsen is a ski area with two dinky lifts and no grooming. Pretty much, it’s lift accessed backcountry. If they mark a hazard, they mean it. The owner sits in a hut at the bottom of the lift, smoking his pipe. The way a resort should be run.
A day of guiding five ripping skiers around Seki is heaven. This is the result.
