Skiing at Kokonoe Ski Resort

Hello y'all!. babai This week's travel & living segment in Yatie Chomeyl's blog will bring you to an exciting story of skiing and sledding at a Ski Resort. Ready to ski with me?.


2 weeks ago, we went to Kokonoe Shinrin Koen Ski Resort which is situated at 612-1, Oaza Yutsubo Kokonoe-machi, Kusu-gun, in Oita Prefecture peace *tuuu dia, siap bagi alamat penuh lagi*. Kokonoe Shinrin Koen Ski Resort is the largest ski resort here in Kyushu with a maximum slope angle of 25degrees and total length of 2500m!.

Actually this is our second attempt to visit the place. We've tried to go to this place after our trip to Beppu Ropeway, but we couldn't get going because it was heavy snow on that day, tayar takde chain maka terlekat dalam timbunan salji. I kena turun dari kereta, tahan kereta yang tengah mendaki gunung tu kat belakang kereta kami dan hubby pulak terpaksa drive dalam keadaan kereta bergerak mengundur ke belakang menuruni gunung, sebab jalan lereng gunung agak sempit untuk u-turn; di tambah lagi dengan timbunan salji tebal kat atas jalan tu. Memang ngeri betul masa tu, life and death experience penat yang I takkan lupa sampai bila2 kot.


Well anyway finally, we managed to visit the place 2 weeks ago as the snow stopped falling making the road less dangerous. We went there with another Malaysian friend i.e. Ana & Bad's family. It took us about 1 hour 30 minutes rides with car, from our place. The weather on that day is nice with no snowing, thus making the journey to the top of the mountain a lot easier and safer.

The entrance fee is 1000yen (~RM 40) per adult and additional fee to rent the ski equipment will be charged for those who wish to rent the service. Since the rental fee for the ski equipment is quite expensive duit i.e. 6000yen (~RM240) per adult, we decided to just rent one set per family. Lagipun pergi dengan anak kecik, bukannya boleh dua2 main..kena gilir2 jaga anak because the skiing area is quite dangerous for baby. Nasib baik jugak kami bawak sendiri 3 sledge board pinjam dengan kawan2, kalau tak kena bayar lagi extra untuk sewa sledge board jugak.

This Kokonoe Shinrin Koen Ski Resort is divided into 6 main area which consist of Challenge Course, Trial Course, Panorama Course, family course, lesson square and Kid's Square.


(1) Challenge Course --> For skiers who want to greatly improve their skiing skills. This is an exclusive course for advanced skiers. *obviously not for us!*

(2) Trial course --> This is a dynamic course for intermediate skiers

(3) Panorama course --> Skiers can enjoy a superb panoramic view from the top of the slope, and enjoy the refreshing air.

(4) Family course --> Beginners and families can comfortably enjoy skiing this course
(5) Lesson course --> This is a practice course where total beginners can ski down a gentle slope

(6) Kid's Square
--> Kids can enjoy sleds and making snowmen


Hubby accompanied Nazhan & I for a while at the Kid's Square where we had fun sledding down the 30m hills. Though it's not so steep but it was still fun to sled on the sledge board. It took me a while to master the taking corner part and also braking part. Luckily, they've installed a long net as a stopper for those first timer sledge-r who found it difficult to make the sledding stopped *like me* gatai.

After that, hubby & Bad went to test their skills to ski at the Lesson Course area. I don't have any idea on how they are doing as it is a first time experience to ski for all of us. But, at least hubby managed to strike few pose to the camera while skiing, kira OK la tu kot sebab takde pun pose yang menunjukkan dia jatuh tergolek ataupun berguling2 jadi snowball menuruni bukit tu eheh.

While at the same time, Ana & I were struggling tension to take care of the 3 hyperactive babies that requested sledge session every now and then. Penat tau nak panjat bukit tu sambil bawak budak seberat 11kg, pastu turun dengan sledge board tak sampai 1 minit pun huhu. So, we decided to play at the downside of the hill and tolak je budak2 tu slow2.


+- seronok lah ada orang tarik -+

After some time, the boys were getting bored and demand for a more challenging game. Ana & I brought the boys to the upper area of the Kid's Square where they could have fun playing with the snow, make their own snowman and dig into a hole which looks like an igloo.

Nazhan suka betul bila dapat masuk kat dalam lubang tu, dah macam cencorot dah mommy tengok si kecik nih keluar masuk kat celah2 lubang tu. Bila tarik keluar pun dia tak nak, meronta2 nak lepas dari dukungan mommy dan masuk balik dalam lubang igloo tu. Last2, he got stucked inside the hole. Baru lah terhegeh2 nangis mintak tolong mommy keluarkan dari lubang cencorot tu ihikhik.

+- cencorot ihikhik -+


+- mommy join jadi cencorot jugak -+


After the stuck incident, Nazhan decided to play with the snowballs pulak. Since his glove is not a waterproof glove, habis basah kuyup glove dia tu. Then, mommy had to give my glove to Nazhan sebab tangan dia dah kembang kesejukan tapi still dia rilek je macam tak sejuk. Pegang2 salji tu barehanded lagi isk3x.


+- pakaikan glove mommy kat nazhan -+


I was then got the chance to try the ski and changed clothes and ski equipment with hubby. So, hubby terpaksa pakai winter jaket and boot I sementara I pakai ski-clothes tu. Nasib baik la size badan kitorang lebih kurang je dan saiz kaki ialah sama besar, so memang tak de masalah nak switch sesuka hati cuma hubby malu nak bergerak dengan baju + boot I tu coz nampak dia "ayu" sangat gelakguling hahaha.


Well, to be honest I didn't skied at all!. I was afraid that I might fell down ; the skiing shoes is damn heavy that I couldn't even being able to move my feet and on top of all that is I dont even know how to move that damn thing!. Err I guess skiing is not that fun huh; :ngacir: especially for a first timer *coward* person like me.

Nevertheless, I still managed to pose for the camera because obviously that's all that matter. encem Who cares about the fact that you can ski or not when you have a great picture showing that you look really great in the ski equipment, right?. *OK, I might not looking really great in the picture tapi tetap perasan nak puji diri sendiri*

We went home after the looks-like-I'm-skiing-but-actually-I'm-just-posing-for-the-camera session.siul The boys were getting cranky and grumpy as it was supposed to be the lunch time session for them. We had our lunch in the car as it was freezing cold to have a picnic and eat the meal at the snowy parking area.

I could say that the skiing session went OK and not as great as I expected it to be. Must be due to the fact that Nazhan is still small so we have to alternately took care of him and cant be skiing together. Also, must be due to the fact that I'm so penakut to fall down that I don't really put on real effort to ski decently. However, I am still satisfied with this trip as I can now proudly tell the world that "Yeah, I've tried skiing!";peace even though it was just a looks-like-I'm-skiing-but-actually-I'm-just-posing-for-the-camera session. But hey, who cares?!.angkatkening
