now that its all over, were there any times where you were pissed off with heading to a cold car for the night after a hard days shredding and/or bevvying at night? Did you only stay in the car or did you get a hotel some nights?

Staying in the car never pissed me off once. Im a pretty resilient fella!

Being able to move around freely was well worth it. I saw everything in Hokkaido that I had been dreaming about for years, had the best snow at the best spot every day. So many first lifts due to sleeping in the car park LOL.

-21c at sounkyo spa / kurodake ropuway was a definate highlight!

Sounkyo which is where Kurodake ropuway is situated was by far the most beautiful and breath taking place I visited on my trip. Tomamu was the most disappointing place although it is quite beautiful in the surrounding area
