Here I am!

Have some video!

Niseko peak run

And a run of Miharashi.

Recorded today. It was a good day, most of it was spent balls deep in pow.

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?

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.
