  1. Those were the days. Didn't experience the peak of it thankfully. I'm sure the ski resorts look back fondly though.
  2. Hate it when quantity is reduced as a way of increasing prices without actually increasing them. Favourite restaurants cutting sizes is particularly annoying. I'd rather they put the price up, or gave us the choice of a larger size.

    Minakami - playing in snow / childrens areas

    Don't know about the other two, but a friends family goes to Norn for the children area. It's pretty big by all accounts and they can do some fairly decent skiing at the same time.

    Steep in Hokkaido

    In the Niseko topic I just mentioned I can't get past the lack of steep there as much as I loved the snow. I was wondering. Are there any ski-jo in Hokkaido that have a good bunch of steep runs to enjoy?

    Niseko - what is the appeal?

    When I went the snow was really great. But with Niseko I just can't get past the lack of steep.

    Gassan - worth a shufty?

    I went up there a few years back in... I think it was late June. It was a fun day though I wouldn't take new gear! Different mindset required to winter season of course. And as someone else mentioned, Zao is a good place to visit any time of the year.

    Watching the parents gradually get less mobile is saddening... for them and for me a look into the future.

    Beer 2014

    Got me a six pack of Akiaji last night and had 2 cans. Nice. And indeed a pretty can as well. What's more, the fact that aki is just round the corner is bloody great too!
  16. Is Costco cheap? a bit or a lot?

    Important news of the day thread

    CONSTANTLY criticising your child’s school is a vital part of being a shit parent, it has been claimed. Whatever they’re doing, it’s bad Useless parents believe the best way to help their offspring is by reacting hysterically to anything the school does and regularly threatening to kick teachers’ heads in. Mother-of-two Emma Bradford said: “I found out the teachers at my son Callum’s primary school had been making the children race each other for their own sick amusement. “They dressed the kiddies up in little shorts and made it hard for them to run by making them carry an egg on a spoon. As well as the risk of paedophiles, the eggs are full of cholesterol. “Naturally the first thing I did was call the local paper. The little mite was so traumatised he’s not been able to do anything except steal bikes all week. “I went round to see the headmaster but he’s still off work after I punched him for confiscating Callum’s phone, just because his friends wanted to hear all the ringtones during a lesson.” Shit parents expressed further concerns including pupils being forced to do unpaid work and putting on weight due to being made to sit down. Parent Tom Logan said: “The teachers keep telling my kids all these terrifying stories about witches, transvestite wolves and this ravenous caterpillar that absolutely will not stop, like the ****ing Terminator or something. “It’s no wonder they can’t get to sleep after staying up till 3am drinking Coke and playing Need for Speed.”

    My office's attempt at coffee is Nescafe Excella.
  23. Organising it yourself can take you to different places. It's what I do anyway.
