By the way, anyone in Hakuba seen my beige corduroy cap (i-path brand with red circular logo on front, and a silver pin in the side of a boy with a bird on his head - a local sculpture).


FT seen it at yours? The day i came and painted maybe?


I think i may have lost it at Snowbeds or Masta Brasta that weekend... (the 25th/26th November...)


I hate losing hats.


There could be a reward if found! (beer!)

If you know which cam u want I can help you with that. I have a bit of 'negotiating' power at my local kitamura kamera

Weekend report:


Sat: Perfect packed powder on piste for carving on the top half OF What is open (ie. one run), and hard packed on bottom half of what is open.

Both fun.

The odd rock or dirt patch poking through on a cat track and holes around the edges of cat tracks to fall into / ollie over.


Sun: light small flake snow in the air - packing down into that marbly hard shiny snow that is easy to catch an edge on, on the lower run, and heavy snow on the upper run.


Both days fun. In an early season training kind of way, but injuries waiting to happen for beginners and the over confident. Hope it softens up for next weekend.


I took out new 153 twin and had some fun. Should be fun in the powder too.

We'll see.


The nose and tail are both about as long as the tail on my set back stance Sansalone, so if that works switch in powder then this is easier - short nose doesn't matter so much as long as your moving reasonably fast - it's out, and short tail sinks no probs.


The shorty felt fine slashing through the choppy powder (20cm - 30cm only) patches between bushes yesterday.


I accept it won't be my first choice for waist deep, due to the difficulty of getting moving again when stopped, but it would work when moving..


All 'big mountain powder riders' should spend a day on a 154 twin in the powder, preferably all in the same place on the same day, and see who still rips lol.gif

That would be fun.

And you'd appreciate your big gun when you got back on it!
