Where are you? We should go boarding sometime! I'm off thurs-Monday this coming week. I would say Shirakami is easily bigger than Geto and on a pow day would be the choice hands down. I was at Geto during two days of intense snowfall and all the runs we're epic. If it was sunny and groomed, I'd be to the bottom so fast I'd be mad. Shirakami has two places where it might have over 32-33 degrees, but one for sure isn't open yet. I'd say Hakkoda is the best period if you know how to not get lost there. I got lost onceand it was petrifying wondering if you'd make it out before dark. I'm an email away from paying for a tour there, but if you know your way around really well I'll buy you a 5 punch ticket just to gets far off the beaten path.
