Yhyy, the last day on this year's trip... But again a bluebird succes - so skin up the ridge, ski down on smooth gara-gara zawa with fresh winblower pow, had a couple of beer, and head down to tokyo!
We headed straight up to Happo's top lift in the morning, and our plan was to skin up on the ridge and see how the conditions were. It was pretty much completely blue bird so no complaining on the weather. After a small skin up, we decided to head...
2nd day of the trip. no new snow, but we managed to find some stashes from summerroad and we ended up skiing the first track on happo north.
Basic-powder, that's it. Check out the video: https://vimeo.com/58174337
A snowy morning turned out to be pretty wet - on the way to Happo the precipitation turned from snow to rain. We ended up skiing vouple of laps of Sakka region and called it a day.
First couple of days, basic start for trip in Japan - pretty much epic in any other country. So knee deep, mostly on Happos south side skiing in the trees. We managed to score a pretty nice house & two mini-4-wheelers to drive around with. Snowpac...
