  1. the taisetsuzan range has a base now-- I was up on asahidake at the bottom of the ropeway just to hit the onsen and take a look around last week, about 10cm in the parking lots-- its going to be a killer year-
  2. From the movie "Realtime" this clip was all filmed on Asahidake- Hokkaido

This year definitely lacked the snowfall and cold that last year had. Typically, we get a good base (ground-level) by mid december, and it snows every day until feb, then it gets reallly cold. we didnt get a good base until christmas(ish)-- and we had a few days of rain through january, and only a few good storms. honestly last year, from december till febuary I only remember seeing the sun 3-4 times. this year it was sunny quite a bit. that being
