  1. Atm im lodging in goryu area, so if i come it will probably only be for about 2-2 1/2 hours because I have to catch the bus back and i think the last evening bus leaves at about 9.40pm~
  2. lol my vid cam is a hdd model with the battery exposed out the back so that probably explains it really well, thanks for all your help, i'll try getting a cover or simular for it.
  3. Question that was bothering me that I wanted to ask about before I leave for Japan, what type of temperatures do the video cameras people use at the ski resorts operate in? I have a sony HD cam which dad said froze (stopped responding) in poland at about -5, and started working again when he had it back in the car, I dont know if it was just the video camera freaking out or because of the cold temperatures but the manual does say operating temp 0 to 40c, anyone else had simular problems?
  4. yep i just tried again fixing my error and that was why, thanks for picking up on it! Also hope everyone had a great new years!
  5. Okay so new plan, catch train from Central Japan International Airport to Kanayama on the 18th after we land, stay the night in a capsule inn then in the morning this train schedule to Hakuba:
  6. And on Jorudan I just got very diffrent results so now im confused! if the trains dont run at night, how would I go about finding cheap accom for a night near nagoya airport? pretty much just looking for somewhere to sleep before leaving 6am in the morning to hakuba
  7. thats the result i got when putting in nagoya to hakuba 18th january from midnight i'll try the site you posted just now, hopefully I can get it worked out!
  8. from http://www.hyperdia.com/cgi-english/hyperWeb.cgi just enter nagoya as the start point and hakuba as the destination. *EDIT* more information about hyperdia: http://www.japanrail.com/JR_hyperdia.html
  9. Hi, on the 18th Jan im flying into Nagoya and landing at about 10pm, I don’t have a epassport so im assuming its going to be an hour or two before I get out of the airport, from Nagoya airport how do you get to the train station? And how many people can be expected to be on the trains at 1amish in the morning? After our flight lands we where planning to catch trains to hakuba Nagoya Ltd.Exp. WideViewShinano to Matsumoto at 12.30am then Matsumoto JR Oito Line to Hakuba at 3.04am Reason im asking is would it just be better to carry our snowboard bags as luggage on the train or send
  10. i actually watched both picture this and optimistic this morning personally I liked picture this more then optimistic because I wasnt that fond of the talk scenes in optimistic and I just liked the video editing more in picture this, although I dont think it was an exellent 10/10 video it definitely was good.
  11. I have bad wrists so I wear wrists guards, although word on the street is if you have a hard enough impact, wrist guards transfer the pressure from your wrist to your radius/ulna and can make a pretty nasty snap
  12. The modern helmets are really nice too, very light, look good and lots of them play music now
  13. I'd be interested in comming and meeting other SJers if thats okay would be me +1
  14. are you flying jetstar? you get 20kg in baggage, and 7kg onboard luggage, and you can buy additional kg's if you want for a decentish rate. Personally I plan to pack all my clothes etc into my snowboard bag, by itself my boots, bindings, board and bag as well as some tools like scrapers, wax, ptex etc come to about 10kg~.
  15. Buying in Japan will probably be cheaper than shops in Aust, genrally if you bought an all mountain board its going to be fine for aust/japan, just for powder people genrally want a longer board for more float on the soft surface, although that setup I had posted above would be fine for my freind in both aust and japan, he waited to long though and now the boards sold out, it was from http://www.sierrasnowboard.com/ but they dont ship to Aust so you would have to use a 3rd party to ship like a freind or service like this http://www.shopanyamericanstore.com. Remember most important part of y
  16. no you can walk from K's to goryu/47 but other resorts u need train/shuttle, check out the map on k's website it gives you a good indication. What type of riding do you plan to do in hakuba? from what i've read goryu/47 dont like people going off piste/tree runs and will strip your pass pretty quickly? Also goryu/47 do have a 5 day ticket whats pretty good value, but from what I understand you want to check out a veriety of resorts (same as to what i've planned) and will probably spending 2 or so days at each?
  17. Hi, either of those dates sound great for hakuba, I've actually booked at K's House Hauba Alps for 16 nights although i've never been there, its a bit out of the way though, so to get to most resorts presides goryu/47 you have to catch the train then shuttle bus. Echoland is ment to be the most centralised area for getting to any resort as its right in the middle, but I beleive this means higher bed prices. Also the train to happo is free, but past there you have to pay a train fare. If you look at the snowjapan website and search seperate resorts it has the tickets available as well as cost
