Hey Onji

I like the sound of Asahidake

any photos or vids of the terrain there?

I just got back from another 3 days in Nozawa

great trip we had 30cm of fresh on day 1 and 2 and plenty left over in the trees for day 3

will post up a report later with pics as usual

still waiting for my proto CT to arrive, but hopefully will be here for my next trip up to Nozawa in about 10 days time

should be perfect for most of what I like to do on a board

lets hope it gets cold again (it will) and we get lots more powder this month

@Dreampow

These shots aren't by me, and stolen from snowjapan.com, I'll post some in about 3 weeks when I get back from my trip.

It's great for long runs of deep pow that are accessible via lift, but if you want steep epic rollers (like Art of Flight epic), the closest stuff I've seen in Hokkaido would be hitting one of the many spines of Mt Yotei. Preferably accessed via one of the aforementioned choppers

Here is my latest Nozawa trip report.

http://www.snowboardingforum.com/res...st-2012-a.html

Already made back my money on my season pass, every trip from now on is free.

Next trip 12th-14th.

Hopefully on my Proto by then.

On Monday the 12th and maybe the 13th for half a day I and Raid will be meeting up in Nozawa for some (looks like) powder/trees/ sidecountry action.

I will stay until Wednesday if the powder is good.

Looks like this will be one of the last powder dumps (hopeful we will get one or two more) this season.

Anyone who is capable of pretty advanced riding and wants to check out Nozawa this is a good chance. I know its a long drive for you boys up in Tohoku but, would be great to see you down here.

Good to hear you're catching up with some crew from the forum. I tried twice this season, but we never made the rendezvous due to various comedies of error.

I'm be doing some BC around Mt Tokushunbetsu with a mate of mine this weekend. The Teine range got a dump yesterday so I'm hoping some of that drifted East to Tokushunbetsu. I'll post some pics on Mon/Tues or so.

Hey Dreampow how long is Nozawa staying open 'til? Some of the Hokkaido skijos have scheduled April 9, but I'm hoping they'll stay open longer.

Nozawa is usually open til the first week of May, my last trip is usually the last dump of powder/heavy powder though which may be early April.

Since next season is my last in Japan, I really want to improve my riding... I hope I can join you guys for some meet-ups next year. ETM, I completely second and support the idea of a meet-up thread, mostly because I want to learn from you guys.

Yeah let's definitely do the meetup for the 2013 season.

If it affects anyone's schedules I should have time off around the last 2 weeks of Dec and the first 2 of Jan

We already set a rough date for 1st week of Feb Rusutsu in another thread. Of course we can do more than one so more people can come.
