I am still in tokyo at my gf's parents house. I get my van tomorow, will take a couple of days to remove rear seats and do a fit out on it before I leave.
The gf really wants to spend new years here with her family so we will do that and leave on the 1st or 2nd, then its riding every day.
Dreampow got 2 days on the board I built for him on the weekend.
Oh, you should def stay in Tokyo on the 1st - at least if you haven't done so before (but something tells me you might have done that). Which resort was it you were going to and does the snow cover seem promising so far? In any case I so envy you and I'm so going next winter.
I have never been in japan for christmas and new year before.
I am heading to nagano, pretty sure I will season pass nozawa and day trip to other resorts.
Season pass is paid for in 13 days of normal lift ticket prices so you can buy it and not feel locked into the one resort to get your moneys worth.
Ill probably needs a few days to get my snow legs back then I will bust out the gopro. I made a new grip for the pole too so I can get shots from behind and slightly out to to the side which will hopefully be a nice angle and wont get hosed in snow
