Tal06 replied to Tal06's topic in Snow talk, trip reports, Japan avalanche & backcountryThanks MitchPee for the info, much appreciated. Are the slopes near Sapporo good for off-piste as well or mostly groomers? Have you based yourself (something you do to a turkey?) in Asahikawa before? I was thinking Furano TubbyBeaverinho but I heard they are very strict on you if you leave the beaten track? Could just be a rumour. Cheers
Tal06 posted a topic in Snow talk, trip reports, Japan avalanche & backcountryHey guys, I'm planning on heading to Hokkaido in Feb 2012. We can only go for two weeks and we are thinking one week in Niseko, and doing the other week somewhere else. Where is good to go for a week on the north island? I have been to Rusutsu and it was great but I'm not sure I would want to spend a week there. Apart from there I have only been to Niseko. Somewhere close by a city would be tops or at least somewhere with some nightlife. Any ideas would be great. Cheers!
