Hi guys, Just wanting some advice for my first ski trip to Japan - have been skiing resort and back country in OZ for 10+ years but never OS, and never in anything other than ankle deep OZ back country snow for up to a week (Main Range and Vic Alps) ski touring style. Wanting to mix it between long resort ski runs (the thing I miss most when skiing in OZ resorts) and to get a real taste for some back country Japan style skiing with a mix of getting some instruction, and also some time to ski in a resort(s) perhaps on my own. Will be travelling solo, and I'm in the 35+ y.o. range, so not going there for nightclubs or heavy drinking sessions. Looking to head over there over the Xmas - NY's period. Any advice that can be offered including who best to organise through, best locations/resorts, do's/dont's etc. Appreciated. John K.
