killclimbz: Yes, I'll definitely be doing more BC next season. I'm even planning on getting into hiking during spring/summer to make the ascents easier.
BigGame: Sweet! Next you're gonna tell me that in addition to being close to mountains, you can get Taco Bell and Reese's PB Cups on your base too, right?

|killclimbz||It's great that you had a blast your first time out doing something like this. Sounds like you'll be doing it again. Japan, for all it's population, is still in it's infant stages for backcountry riders from what I've seen. Not many people doing it compared to what's available. What a great time to get into it. Get out there, explore, and take lots of pics for us to check out.|

|BigGameHit||Hakkodo is freaking awesome man and the view is amazing man. I road it last week. Ill be in Japan for the next 4 years. once I add some more experience, ill try to tackle what you accomplished for sure. so far i have been to Yakiyama in 3 times and Hakkoda once in my baby career.|

killclimbz: I know... I wish I had some pics of the descent, but it was the first real backcountry (aside from the Niseko peak if that counts) any of us had done, so we were kind of blown away by how good the riding was. If you ever make it over here, I hear Hakkoda has amazing backcountry. I'm hoping to make it out there next season.
oneplanka: I mean the can they had the bear in, of course .
BigGame: Definitely try to make it up to Niseko/Hokkaido while you're here! The resorts here on Honshu just don't compare.
arsenic: The first time I took it out in powder, I was surprised at how well the SL-R handled it. If I'm planning on riding mostly powder, I put my bindings on the next to last set of holes. You don't even have to try to keep it floating.

|killclimbz||Awesome! Though I think you should have taken some time to photo slut it up on the descent. I know it's kind of a pita, but the down turns always seem to be worth it. One of these days I am going to make the trip to Japan to ride the bc there. It looks fantastic.|
