Hey hey fellow snow enthusiasts! Presently Hakuba is well in a bit of a transition period between summer and winter.

Hope all you folks out there had a good summer. We are getting stoked for the coming of winter even though it is only the end of September a lot of die-hards are already buying new gear, checking out the new models of sliding aparati, and waiting with baited breath for the first flakes of the season. Fall is a great time to get into shape for the ski season for all the lazy sods with desk jobs, so get on yer bike, hike a peak or do some cycles in the gym.....whatever you need to fule your fire for the opening days of the hills!

But the real fun stuff to do this fall is on the rivers, trails, smooth concrete and ramps in the area. Hakuba 47 and Aokiko Ski areas both offer downhill MTB trails for people to ride. Aokiko Lake is great for Canoeing/Kayaking/Swimming and Kizakiko Lake for waterskiing and wakeboarding. Sanosaka has their newly designed water jump open for air training in the summer and I believe Goryu has their water jump open as well. Go and practice those misty 720's that you wanna stick for next season. We SK8 boarders can also rip down some smooth ass roads in town to train for boarding and I like to hit the mini-ramps as well to hurt myself in all new ways.

The newly designed Aokiko MTB trail is quite fun and though it is not lift accessed, they have van shuttles to the top for a very reasonable rate of 500 yen/day. Alongside the Matsukawa river in Donguri you can hit up the MTB Jump and Trials Park which is a blast and Hakuba 47 has their usual MTB dirt jumps going. October 21 there will be a MTB Jamboree Festival at Aokiko Lake, come out for the fat tire fun and music!

So although winter is not yet arrived, we are in ready mode and anticipate another epic year in Hakuba!

Hope to see some you folks up here this fall and in the winter!
