  • A watch on TV and actually see a totally different place I think. Headed to the top of the mountain and rode the lift did I cringe also can first see below steep slopes so much leg. Eyes accustomed and enjoy the views as a lookout and slowly glide path (? ) You can have a look. Was when we did just have snow jump team. Staff was helpful question to wait and prepare things for jumping practice, emergency, so you're ready to do not disturb from the bottom of the Observatory. Is, of course, does not interfere with the practice of ensuring that really were lucky. I saw players doing jumping exercises while on the lift down. A completely different sense of speed and I had a good experience.

  • I wonder if you go watch the thing is competition but jump saw. Tell you what great legends Kasai, Sara Takanashi. We look across the city landscape is nice. The air is clean. Only can experience and restaurant facilities. But the happy. Even in the summer wind that blows cool. Not used to driving on roads winter, winters are very cold and people who think in a rental car to go hard.
