Sick stuff dreampow. I've always been itching to go to Nagano. Have you been to Hakuba this season yet?
edit: Dreampow, every person in Japan should have a dedicated powstick!!
We have been getting dumped on the last couple of days in Hakuba (make that actually over the last week and a half), condtions are excellent here at the moment. The sun is shining today. You really can't go wrong around the Nagano area at the moment.
A few Cortina days last week were just amazing. We had some guests staying at my lodge who have done over 200 powder days of skiing and called it their best and deepest days of powder in Cortina on Saturday.
DreamPow, great vid and pics. The winter is finally delivering deep days here in Honshu, now for my knee to heal up ASAP.
