While I was checking for more winter sports venues I came across a very lovely sim you should explore. It is called "Yuki No Yumi ... A Dream of Snow." The region is a natural Japanese winter setting created by Jac Mornington. It is elegantly beautiful, incorporating the mountains, valleys, brooks, and seas enveloped in snow. Delicate bridges connect the hillocks that are surrounded by running streams. Several lovely typical Japanese homes fully decorated sit in an area near the center of the region.
While I was there some lovely Japanese avatars were wandering through and enhanced the beauty of the area. As you follow along the paths you will be charmed by discoveries, a hot spring, where you can relax, a chair overlooking a pond inhabited by a duck family. an ice covered pond where majestic cranes stand. I passed a stag watching over his family while they visited a feeding station.
High on a hill there are temple ruins and below a small buddhist worship temple stands along the entrance road. The view is so majestic with waters and mountains it is difficult to find the edges of the sim. It seems to go on and on which adds to the beauty. Take a walk and relish the tranquility, a good way to start the new year.
