I have some buddies from AK that are all very strong riders and very solid in the BC looking at doing a road trip through Hokkaido for a couple weeks riding both on and off resort (Yes they have all the gear etc). Niseko wont be their thing except for a night or two out and maybe a little park action. As my experience in Hokkaido is pretty limited Im hoping someone can offer up some suggestions as to where these guys should head, possibly base themselves etc. Thanks. LP.
