I will 100% be coming sometime late jan early feb so I will definitely hit u up on here to discuss riding a day or two. Would be awesome to have someone who has been before to show some nice stashes to hit.

Haven't logged on it a bit but it was nice reading all the information you guys provided! I know most places in Japan are more mellow but loads of powder. For those that have been there, what would you compare the grade of terrain to?

Only having ridden the mainland U.S., mostly Colorado I consider most intermediate runs very boring and mellow. Heck a lot of black diamond runs are mellow which is why I started hiking and riding fresh uncharted terrain. It's more of a rush not knowing how steep the terrain may get on your descent. Powder without the steepness to really get you floating and throwing loads of snow on turns is kind of boring.

Its not Alaska. If you are willing to do some work (sounds like you are) there are steeps available. Bring snowshoes and come hike shiribetsu with me.

if you're interested in getting out there for cheap,

check out our trip:
NYT SNOW 2013 | NEW YORK

you can fly out of anywhere you want, just inquire about what you want to do. we have experience and connects in Hokkaido, so everything will be taken care of. plus you won't find rates like that anywhere else to get out there.

would love to shred with new peeps!
