Well I just locked in 6 weeks in Hokkaido for next year. Fly out from sydney on jan 20 so my first day on the slopes will be jan 22.
I am going car danchi style and roaming all the resorts in Hokkaido chasing the powder and new riding experiences. Will definately be in Rusutsu the first week of feb for the meetup. I did hope to get down into Honshu but that may not happen now unfortunately.
