Looking good, very good.
Was thinking I might bring my swallowtail with me to Hokkaido, now I think not.
Quick report on conditions here in Japan, in a word epic.
Its the perfect year to test those beasts out.
Nagano was bottomless and by far the deepest and lightest powder I have ever seen at this time of year. I was cruising Nozawa for 3 days.
7 kilometers top to bottom and powder turns all the way. Hardly a person in sight. Had fresh snow fall each of the 3 days.
Endless face shots, powder butters and plenty of 3s and grabs into untouched powder landings. Absolutely the best start to the season possible.
Terje even showed up to the party although I didn't see him my riding buddy did.
Anyone who has the means I would recommend coming over here you get the added bonus of trying out ETMs boards.
@ETM I am now looking at something like the 29th of Jan to the 1st of Feb, will let you know as soon as i have the green light.
