Snow Glorious Snow Festival!

Sapporo Snow Festival attracts 2 million visitors and my bestie and I were 2 of them.

Weather: It snowed every day and was crazy windy.  The high was in the 20’s (F).  We had a nice sunny Saturday.  For the first time in my life, I used the pocket warmers they gave out.

Food:  Crab, scallops, oysters, lamb were the local specialties and they were fantastic.

Activities:  Not only were there enormous sculptures, there were shows and ski jumpers.  We did 2 laps on cross-country skis as well.  If the kids were there, it would have been a lot of fun – ice slides, snow tube rides, and ice skating.

Organization: 2,000,000 people in the same place looking at the same thing can be a bit much but the long rectangular park was turned into 1 way direction and prevented many of the issues for the tight space.  They had buses to the other locations which I went to Sunday afternoon.

The best part of the trip was hanging out with my friend and the second was the hotel didn’t have internet.  It was nice to unplug!
