  1. I 18th - 29th December in Niseko and then New Years in Tokyo last year. Tokyo was a massive NYE party. We're paying for our 2010/2011 trip this weekend.
  2. I stayed at the Vale last year and tried to book again for our 2010/2011 trip. I tried to do this in March and they told me that the rooms I was looking at were reserved for VIP guests. I'm not sure what being a VIP guest involves but they'd managed to book before the price listing had become available and before the rooms were released to the public. In the end I got a luxury 3 bdr/3 bthr penthouse with rooftop jacuzzi for half the cost of the Vale and only a block away. I'm looking forward to making the comparison between the two.
  3. Those pics are sweet. It's bringing back memories. I'm booking this year's trip next week. Can't wait.
  4. I'm about to finish work in an hour or so and then going on annual leave tomorrow. Due to what I do for work, there is no way I'm going to look at a computer for at least 6 weeks! I think I'm more excited about not having to sit in front of a computer than I am about going to the snow. I'll have to ask SJ when I get back to work next year. Have a good one everyone and might see you around in Niseko. I'll be easy to find...just look for the guy with a beer in each hand and bruises all over from eating sh!t on the slopes.
  5. Seemore, What is PM??? I'm new to this and only get a chance to look at it while at work and have a spare 30 seconds.
  6. Thanks for the info. I'll certainly look into buying some BioMex gloves. The helmet on the other hand I might give a miss. There's just something about wearing a helmet whether it's skating,snowboarding or wakeboarding that makes me uncomfortable. Same applies when I grew up playing cricket. I got hit a few times in the head but hated the feeling of having a helmet strapped to me so I didn't wear one.
  7. I've surfed and ridden a skateboard for over 20 years so I'm confident that I know how to fall to minimise injury. Although, having broken both wristes 3 times in the past I am somewhat concerned about breaking them again. It wouldn't stop me from going back up the montain the next day but the cold weather will certainly make it more painful. Does anyone where wrist gaurds or some other device to stop this from happening?
  8. Is it compulsory to wear a helmet though? I wasn't really planning on landing on my head.
  9. Having a lot money isn't luck unless that money comes from winning the lotto or something similar. Working you butt off to make a lot of money should be considered a justified reward.
  10. The fact of the matter is I don't want to work at all. I would rather spend my time fishing, surfing, diving, snowboarding and drinking beer. In order to do that, I have to work hard now and earn as much coin as I can. As I've said, I love my life but I don't like my job. Is that so uncommon? If my job didn't pay well then I wouldn't do it but I'm not going to shy away from it because it involves massive hours and a high degree of stress.
  11. Instinct is good until you make the wrong decision because you didn't consider the outcomes of your actions. I would prefer to know where I'm going and what I'm doing rather than "just go with the flow". Everyone has to have a plan. Just my opinion and I'm sure many will disagree. Mamabear, I consider career happiness to be enjoying what you do for work. Being successful at what you do doesn't always make it enjoyable. I had a dream, went to uni for quite a long time (5 1/2 years) landed my "dream job" but then realised it wasn't what I thought it would be. So, it has changed from "
