    Travel Life Change your life.

    Another cracking season in Hakuba. Lifts closed up yesterday. 13 seasons under the belt now. Thought I may have had 10 in me but still fighting fit. As Warren said if you don't do it this year, you'll be one year older when you do. Take the plunge now. I can thoroughly recommend it.

    Question Hakuba - Bring Avi Gear?

    I’ve never been there. I love sidecountry, but won’t be doing backcountry. Is avalanche gear a good idea. It’s easy to bring since I live in Okinawa, but won’t bother if unnecessary. Any thoughts?
