It snowed all night but unfortunately the snow was accompanied by a strong wind which churned up the snow into tiny particles and desposit them in big drifts on the lee side of anything. Fortunately the snow was still fun to ride but you were either on pure ice or 40 odd cm of powder, lifes a bitch lol.

This is the danchi when I got up


and this is what I did today, over and over again

Today was epic. I was first gondola up the mountain, first track back down, could barely see all day from all the snow in my face. Took many vids but this is the first, I am in a trance like state atm, total exhaustion, total stoke, Im loving Hokkaido.

Oh man, you are making me sick for some powder like that. Too far and few between this season. Ya need to add some music to your vids though. Dubstep, Metal, Polka, I don't care. Makes 'em more fun to watch. Keep 'em coming ETM...

Yeah i know. They are just unedited vids from my gopro. Turn down the sound and listen to your own music or your missus whining whatever works for you.
