Only thing I am booking will be a week in Nozawa in mid February.

I will probably get that done after summer, no rush.

Going to be 12th-18th Feb.

Thinking about getting to Japan for the first time in winter.

No firm plans yet.

Mine is less a 'don't know yet' post and more of a 'oh pooh, bugger, bollocks! I won't be going' post! :(

 

I have some serious work commitments that mean I won't be likely to be able to extricate myself from Perth from Dec - April.

Grrrr!!! I had plans for a Honshu roadie with Panhead Pete!

IF I can sneak a window of opportunity I will do my best to duck over, even if only for a few days.

 

Cub#2 is hoping to do the season in Niseko.

Cub#4 is heading to either Shiga or Myoko Kogen in mid Feb doing some training with his team ahead of heading to Ufa, Russia, for the International Children's Winter Games. Papabear will be accompanying him.

 

Devo I will miss out on that trip!!

Shiga Kogen is definitely on my bucket list.

Bummer MB missing a Japow winter though I seem recall a similar story last year and you still managed to get over.

More delegation needed at work!! Though I guess with MB away with #4 it might be harder. That cub must be so excited to be heading to an exaotic place like Russia, not to mention PB

BTW where is Panhead Pete - have not heard from him for ages. I think his folks live over here somewhere near me.

Pete's in tropical QLD these days, but planning a big Japow tour Jan/Feb 2013. Lots of little skijo's - I would have dearly loved to join in on that. Off the beaten track so to speak. PB would have loved it also. He gets bored with same same all the time.

 

Little Cub is rather excited yes, but it's the whole staying in the 'athletes village' hitting on the 14yr old Swiss chicks he is most excited about. :D PB was in Moscow recently on a water polo trip, but is keen to visit the ski areas - he has already made friends with a guy in Russia who owns a chalet in Sochi that we have been promised to use the year AFTER the Olympics (quiet, yet new infrastructure), and will be back there in July 2013 with #2 for Polo...maybe he should get a frequent flyer visa for Russia!! ;)

 

Sadly delegation will not save the day this time. Buck stops with me. It is a short term contract though. Someone's gotta stay behind and earn the cashola to bankroll the kids ;). This time it is me. However you are right...where there is a way I shall find it and be on a plane Tokyo bound. As we get closer to the time I may find a week that I can escape, and if #2 is in Niseko then I wouldn't even mind going solo.

I will have my details a few days before I go or thereabouts.

 

Definitely want to get some in before the end of the year though this time.

all booked! Niseko from the 19th -29th of January '13. Staying at The Vale.

 

To say I'm excited is an understatement, it's been 4 years since I'd skiied Japan (which was Hakuba)

I am going to definitely get up that way next season.

Other than that, something to think about more in December.

Putting together some ideas for a trip now.

I have 2 weeks I can take in February so it will be sometime in there.

Earlier better you think?

Still trying to choose a general area.

Fun thinking about it though, difficult to make a choice!

Me and a few more birds will be going to Myoko and perhaps a little further over 10 days in late January.

Details not sorted yet just the Myoko and dates bit.

I will be spending about 3 weeks in Zao in January and 2 weeks in Kusatsu in February.

Helping out some friends.

 

Other than that I want to get to some other places around Gunma and Niigata.
