  1. In 'normal' conditions, which is quicker/easier to get to from Niseko, Kiroro or Rusutsu? We plan on having a rental car. Thanks!

    Ski/snowboard rental gear experiences

    It probably makes sense to buy if you are going to ski more than a handful of times. Can't believe how much some people seem to be paying on rental! And some of the gear that is given out is really out of date. I think the main shops at the popular resorts though offer new gear and sometimes they let you swap gear during the day as well which is an interesting idea. Let's you try a few different styles.
  3. Kiroro We loved it there. The snow was just amazing.
  4. I'm happy I missed all that. I don't like waiting 5 minutes for a lift ;) Seen some photos from the ski boom years and it looks absolute madness. Could hardly see the snow for the crowds of people!

  20. 2013 version! OK so 'sound bars' seem to be popular now. Presumably just not as good as a full blown 5.1 system with 6 speakers. And, is 7.1 much difference really? Let's informations as I think about getting something.
