Recently got back from my latest trip to Nagano. 5 Days in Nozawa onsen.
First couple of days were blue skies with left over powder (in my top secret stashes) from the day before.
Incredible visibility which tempted me into the park as well as my usual tree runs.
Could be my last trip with this set up as I will upgrade board and bindings shortly. This is a great board/bindings combination and I can slay pretty much anything with it.
Friday Saturday and Sunday brought 30~40cm each day and it pretty much never stopped snowing. Sunday afternoon did clear up and gave great visibility for some killer tree runs.
Light and fluffy, white rooms were in abundance.
On Saturday and Sunday I did my first paid guide work on a snowboard. We guided (me and my ex-pro buddy) a group of 7 riders around the lesser known tree runs and safer side country of Nozawa.
Everyone had a blast, including myself. May upload some video footage later as we had some amazing runs on Sunday. Some of the best I have ever had
