Some nice shots of Torstein and Paul there Jishipi. It really has been great the last few days.


I have just tried to post a picture, but it doesn't seem to work. I copied the image location into the image box, but then when I preview it doesn't come up. Any tips?

100cm can fall over a period of a few days and they don't change it.

Good example.
Last 2 days, Kagura over the last 2 days:

40-50cm (yesterday)
50-70cm (this morning)

That's 90-120cm in my reckoning...... but no change in the official snow depth! veryshocked

The last few days here in Niseko have been truly amazing!

3 days ago i thought well - this is as good as it gets and then the next 2 days have pretty much been exactly the same - overcast with heaps of snow. No idea exactly how much but i found a few spots yesterday where it was over head for me and i am a snowboarder !

This morning i booted straight over to Hanazono with Tom and we had ourselves a classic mushroom feast.



In my opinion the only element missing was some sunshine...but when the pow is this good who cares. POW !!!

Tom was is great form which helps ! Really looking forward to checking out the Japan Alps next month - epic big mountain visas....til then will just have to make do with bottomless powder here in Niseko...powder willing.

after a well earned but albeit silly move to take the day off riding yesterday (i heard some epic lines were had all over) we decided to do a bit of peak hiking today. once in the morning dropping from mt annupurri peak down fujiwara no sawa to hanazono 308 for a quick break...then traverse to annupuri side to meet the crew for lunch. then at 225 we headed out gate 2 up the south peak, down to mt annupurri and dropped into kozan no sawa.... the weather lifted, blue sky and golden snow as the sun was dropping made for a great run down and high fives all round at the bottom enjoy some of the pics...vid up soon. ( if i can stop riding long enough to edit something)
