Well it's like a 5 hour ride on the train almost, plus you gotta gets from Aomori City after that. A plane from Sapporo to Aomori would be like 30 minutes or less but obviously more expensive. Hokkaido is rather isolated from Honshu, you can't drive to and from, only train, plane or boat. If you do come, let's GOOOOOOO!!!!! haha

Is Niseko the current deepest snow resort globally? Hakkoda looks incredible, as does Myoko. Two places I definately have to check!

Hakkoda has over 3 feet more snow than Niseko. But at both places that is measured in an "approved" area. The bowls and backside as well as areas that do not get Consistently get tracked are sure to be MUCH deeper.

Jvee - That area of mountains; Niseko, Yotei and Rusutsu have fantastic snow quality. I'm usually at Rusutsu once a week and man the slack country's been great the last few weeks. Send me a PM when you're in Niseko, I've been looking for an excuse to hit that place up this season

As usual the best stuff is in the back country, Asahidake and Daisetsuzan are deeper than my waist at the moment with super fresh powder... it's been dumping all week.
