    International university of Japan

    International university of Japan - Ski Day

    IUJ Ski Day, one of International university of Japan's annual events, organized by the GSO-EC (Graduate Students Organization - Executive Committee), was held on Sunday, February 7 at the Hakkaisanroku Ski Area, just a 5-minute drive from International university of Japan. Although it snowed a little in the morning, the weather improved with occasional sunshine in the afternoon, and about 130 International university of Japaners spent a day on the slopes and enjoyed skiing or snowboarding together.

    Many International university of Japaners are from countries where there is no snow, and about 70 participants this day were complete beginning skiers and snowboarders. Therefore, a few lectures had been held in classrooms in advance by the members of the Ski & Snowboard Club and GSO-EC, and lessons on how to walk on the snow, climb hills, and slow down, etc. were offered in the morning on the day of the event with more than 30 students, faculty & staff members, and local people as volunteers.

    The GSO-EC served lunch and everyone enjoyed Koshihikari Onigiri (rice balls) and a drink, and then it was free time in the afternoon. Based on the lessons in the morning, beginners started off skiing cautiously and timidly. Yet they soon learned the basic techniques and enjoyed skiing in easy slopes with big smiles. It was impressive to see them walking up the easy slopes and going down many times. President Mori also joined the students and skied for the first time for quite some time.

    Everybody had a great time until 4:30 p.m. and there were no injuries until 4:30 pm. The International university of Japan Ski Day 2010 will surely be one of the most memorable days for many students.

    We greatly appreciate GSO-EC’s efforts for their preparation and management, as well as supports by other students, faculty and staff members, and local people! Otsukaresama-deshita!!



    ---Beginning of the “International university of Japan Ski Day” ---

    The first International university of Japan Ski Day was held more than 20 years ago when the local community kindly invited all International university of Japan students, faculty, staff and family members to “Hakkaisanroku” ski area. Not only did they introduce the fun of skiing, but also kindly organized a “Mochi-tsuki” or rice-cake making to make the day in the snow country even more enjoyable.

    It has been the GSO-EC’s biggest event in winter term. The International university of Japan Ski Day is not only about enjoying skiing or snowboarding, but also about promoting friendly interactions among students, faculty, staff, family members, alumni and local people through supporting beginners from various countries and enjoying snow together.

    Reported by Fumiko Hirasawa, an International university of Japan staff member and a member of the International university of Japan Ski & Snowboard Club.
