Cross Country Skiing Tour!!

Information about cross country skiing tour:
Do you know what the cross country ski is? It is different from skiing at the ski area. Since the cross country ski is light because of no heel binding and no edge, cross country ski is easier to control even you are a beginner. The courses we chose to walk are on the farmer's fields which are NOT permitted to enter without the farmer's permission, getting the permissions from 10 farmers. While doing the cross country ski, you can enjoy a 360 degree panoramic view of Biei. Doesn't it sound great? Let's join us to experience the winter of Biei together!
