Looks awesome! how much did the trip cost?

Reede 02-20-2011 02:19 PM

Up front costs were about $3200 AUS, flights to/from sydney, all transfers, accomm and lift passes included.

Not bad at all considering the length of your stay! Looked amazing

omg, I need to get out there. Wide open space with no crowds and pow.

So you were out there all alone? Speak any Japanese?

Reede 02-22-2011 03:44 AM

I know a few token Japanese phrases but can't speak or understand it. Language is rarely a problem tho, and Niseko is full of Australians so its really easy there.

Japan is a very easy, convenient country to visit. I've been to Niseko 3 times now and the conditions you see in that video I will say are fairly typical, you always have a decent amount of powder and occasionally will get a snowfall that is just beyond epic.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 10:22 PM.
