So Wangta who did you use to get out there? Vacation package or did you just arrange everything yourself?

That terrain looks amazing. One of the few bluebird pics I've seen of the mountain out there.

Having been to Hakuba/Myoko/Nozawa over the past couple of years and with another trip in September planned (not for snow this time) I am well and truly in love with Japan.

Here's an edit I made of my recent Myoko/Nozawa trip in January.

Hey guys. Not sure i have any of the chest deep snow but trust me, on a couple of tumbles I was so buried it took me a good 15 mind to get out.

I am still here - trip ends in a couple days so I haven't had time to go through all my pics and video yet but here are a couple I shot off to a couple friends.

And to answer question above - a friend and in arranged all travel ourselves. It can be done, it's just more of a pain in the butt researching etc. Would def do some things a little different but am quite pleased with how things turned out. Would be happy to answer any questions should you guys have any.
