  1. Having spent the last 10+ years riding your typical big/popular resorts in Nagano/Niigata/Hokkaido, this season I fancied a change... Pre-season I'd spent a good long while looking at Google Earth, and topographical maps searching for the kind of resort I like... Something a long the lines of Hakuba Cortina. For any of you that have ridden at Cortina, you'll know that the whole resort centers around a large bowl with everything (pretty much) funneling down to one run in the middle. No traverse ins/outs. Steep. Trees. Perfect.... Only problem is that over the last 3years, Cortina has beco
  2. Sapporo Teine is my local hill, I've now been here a number of times...enough that I have a good feel for the place. I wrote a review of it the other day, so I'll copy n paste it over but add in some pics from today. I woke up this morning to nice sunny skies, with no new snow to speak of I was in 2 minds at to whether to head up to Teine or not....after a jolly good bullying from Pie Eater, I decided to get out amongst it, with expectations being a nice cruisy day on the groomers, perhaps trying to improve my trick skill set which is sorely lacking. As I get the bus up to Highland base st
  3. hello, for Christmas I got a new attack from the backcountry, the new dynafit radical. I have to admit that it is a great product, secure, lightweight, comfortable and above can give you more control downhill. http://www.dynafit.com/it/product/attacchi/tlt-radical-ft-110mm-z12 you have you tried? What do you think?? Ciaoo!!! have a good powder day"!!!!
  4. Today and yesterday I had rare week days off, so I decided to head back to Yuzawa and try and get some uncrowded turns in at GALA. So imagine my surprise when I get there and the place is heaving!!! Whatever, the snow was coming down a fair whack and the ride up in the gondola really got the juices flowing seeing all that snow. I didn't take my camera this time as the forecast was for snow, snow and more snow so I thought I'd just concentrate on the riding. I'd been to Gala before and wasn't so impressed.....it was fine, I had an awesome day, but I just felt the place was small. i didn't howev
  5. I was going to wait and hit up here next Wednesday for some uncrowded weekday action but I couldn't stand looking at all the snowfilled webcams for another weekend, so off I went. Its an early start for me, get the 5.04am train from Fujisawa station to Tokyo, jump on the 6.08am Shinkansen to Echigo Yuzawa and powder heaven. When we were spit out of the HUGE tunnel between Gunma and Niigata, we weren't disappointed to see that the Pow tap was left on and there was loads of snow around and the sky was full of it. Maiko puts on a free shuttle bus from Echigo Yuzawa station to the resort so thats
  6. had a great day yesterday, did the Mizuno no Sawa program with ski patrol, then headed to Moiwa. Then spent the evening doing powder laps as it puked snow. and looked like epic times for today with 40cm of fresh overnight. had one run and my binding is broken . Have to wait for parts from USA.
  7. Here is a brief vid from this morning out gate 2 in Annupuri. Having a fantastic ski vacation with 14 of the last 16 days being powder days. I have managed to get to 4 other mountain resorts in that time and also some back country over at the Goshigi Onsen area as well (thanks to Mitch for the epic day!). Will make alonger report when I finish this trip in 2 weeks.
