That is a great idea!

Most of the majors you can get to easily, it is the smaller resorts that are harder to get to, you need transportation, etc.

There used to be that snow buddy finder...maybe a revival is in order?

Somewhere inland in Hokkaido. Steep would be nice.

Shirakawa-go when lit up

Somewhere with snow monsters (probably Zao I suppose)

Yokoteyama (have to learn to ski good because no boarding)

Somewhere with cool locals (e.g., Hachimantai if it reopens)

The conditions will be terrible, and inclement weather will probably kills us, but I might like to check it out sometime.

BTW Kamui is one of my favorite resorts in Japan. The liberal riding policy is beyond awesome.

My own list:

It's not a ski resort but I tell you what I really want to go see is the pack ice up in the Sea of Okhotsk from Abashiri or around near Shiritoko. I've never seen the ocean covered in ice and would really like to. Think I might have to take a couple of days off next week and head up...

We had a fat dump late March last season but chances are it won't be "comfortable".
