a mystery solved

We're not sure where Pete the Snow Dragon hides during the summer months at Falls Creek, but his friend Samara Tanton spends her time in Niseko's Hanazono resort with 'Kamonohasi' (the ninja platypus).  You can watch a video here.

Samara and Haruka Ito also deliver a clever bilingual Hanazono TV Daily Powder Report on conditions in that part of the Niseko resort.
