Hunter and Takatue...POWDER

Recommended Posts

I just spent the last week up

near Hunter in Tochigii...and it

%&$#*^# DUMPED...

In 3 days I would say at least 1meter fell

in those mtns...


Hunter is not a mountain for powder skiing...

it is very similar to New England Skiing...

good for training and working on technique...

but not much else...and its like a 80% boarder mtn...just for your info...


Aizu Kogen Takatue (fukusima), however, rocks...a little

hiking off the single chair gave me powder

all day...I think only 3 other people tried

to hike...and it was only like a 15min deal... nice pitch, long, and DEEP POW!!

another 2 runs that were lift accessible were

tons of fun, and turned into challenging

mogul runs...all this, and the top of the mtn. wasn't even open (I still can't figure out why they didn't open the top lift...)


great week...now back to work...
