I just heard that two skiers died two days ago when they got caught in an avalanche at Tenjindaira. This is a really cool resort, especially for Gunma, with great backcountry ridin for boarders, and heaps of snow.

I just wanted to say, take care when ridin backcountry. I don't know the full details about this accident, but I'm guessing the guys weren't totally clued in.

Safe ridin.

I seems like many injuries/sad news recently.

I heard two kids died in Gala Yuzawa and now, another two in Tenjindaira! I saw a young snowboarder was bleeding on the slope in Nagano( I hope he is okay) and one skier was evacuately by rescue in Kita-Shiga....


Safe ride people!
