Wanted: Winter Stoke!

Recommended Posts

So I've seen the trailers for the latest and greatest snowboarding movies, the adverts for this season's new gear, a first tracks video from Whistler Blackcomb and a couple of short movies at the Yokohama showing of the Banff Mountain Film Festival, but I've yet to feel to the urges that I normally get around this time of the year to hit the white stuff. In short, my winter stoke has gone for a burton! :sadface: Maybe it's the unseasonably warm weather we're experiencing or the lack of snow on Fujisan but something's up! Hell, the other weekend I even passed up the opportunity to check out the Kanda/Ochanomizu snowboard shops and went to a cafe instead! So if anyone has seen my stoke or has any suggestions as to where I might find it, could they please get in touch asap! :(

Still in Tokyo, sweating away here.

Hasn't the typhoon gone now?

Doesn't feel like autumns here, never mind run up to winter.

Wax your board/skis.

 

It always gets me excited packing my board bag in preparation for heading in the direction of snow.

In fact I have left the boys new boards on display in the lounge - makes me smile every time I walk past.

The forecast looks like snow on Fuji next week fwiw. I love autumn so I'm in no hurry myself.

I bought some new skiboots in 33 degree Bris-Vegas heat yesterday

 

I felt a stoke stirring after that.

Me too.

 

In fact, I hope autumn is long and time slows down.

 

(Obviously I don't want a late start to winter).

In preparation for visits to the Golden Triangle resorts (Granview, Yeti & Sayama)

 

Ooh, we have a new category? "Golden Triangle."

Hakuba.

Golden Triangle.

 

Has a ring to it!
