There was no new snow today but still plenty of powder left over from yesterday to enjoy and the bluebird skies made it all worthwhile. I just cruised around taking pics and enjoying myself with a few cruisy runs.



Here are some more vids, I hope im not boring you guys!

Na mate, just did 8 days at Rusutsu and had an awesome time. Next year I am going to spend the whole of january in Japan, at this stage Hakkoda is where I will be basing myself. Might try to organise a bit of a meet at Hakkoda with a few of you boys. I am not sure if I will get to Hokkaido or not, might just play it by ear.

The board had a huge role in being able to negotiate the trees like that, I have actually designed "my" perfect japan pow board on cad and am going to start pressing some out in time to give them a good test on the local hill this winter here in Australia. Obviously it wont be a good test for the powder characteristics as we get very little but it will at least allow me to iron out any issues I may have with construction.
If I get them sorted I will definately bring a few over for any local crew to try out.

Sweet dude,

I will be up in Nozawa next week.

All the people on here from Japan or making regular trips here should organize a meet. This year will be tricky as we are already well into the season, but how about next year first week of February in Hokkaido?

Hakkoda is cool but we all know the best pow is in Hokkaido.

If we set it up way in advance we might even get a few people coming over from the states too.

How about it?

I'm down to do a meet as well and would actually prefer to go to Hokkaido as well. I've never been to Hokkaido but Hakkoda is just scary as hell, especially without a guide. However, I've been eyeing somewhere around the first two weeks of January to go to Hokkaido since there is an Avalanche Course I'd like to attend.

Do your course and then head up again dude, early Feb is the best time IMO. Iwate is not that far man. I will be coming from Kyoto and some from Australia.

lightest pow fluffiest pow is in Hokkaido, maybe lots of pow in other places, but its a little heavier. Plus much easier for any oversees people wanting to join our gathering. Our meet should be Hokkaido IMO.

I would love to hit Hakkoda as well and get the local knowledge of the sidecountry.

Is it 4 hours by car to Hokkaido?
