Maximo's First Ski Trip
John and Maximo had their first boys trip, although they joined David and Kiyona to Okuibui Ski Resort about 2 1/2 hours from Kobe. They spent the night in a double wide trailer, although a lot nicer than you may be imagining (at about $200 a night!).
Since it's a three-day weekend (although not for us) due to a Japanese holiday, the slopes were packed and they got stuck in a lot of traffic and lines getting started in the morning.
Maximo had a two hour lesson. He didn't do a lot of skiing, but learned a few basics. He came home super excited and wants to go back.
