12/13 at niseko was the best i've ever experience (so far). was seriously EPIC.

Default Niseko this winter

I am heading to Niseko this winter. I am staying at a place called Ace Niseko, aceniseko.com. They said that they have cheap rental powder boards available. Do you think that I will need a powder board or will my ordinary 157 Gnu be able to handle the massive amounts of snow that dump there?

you'll probably want to use a pow stick. plenty available for rent over there.

Default Powder board it is

Sweet, I will rent one off the guys at Ace Niseko Lodge. They said I could try a couple of different models out.

I can't wait!

I booked the 2014 Niseko trip with Ovrride back in August. When I logged in this morning, I notice that the trip is now "out of stock". Does it mean it's full? Or is it cancelled?
