Well, we have moved (possibly temporarily, we'll see how the season unfolds) to our mountain base, 10 minutes from the Kitanomine gondola but on the edge of the wilderness. To celebrate we are having a 2nd hand backcountry ski sale and a 50% off retail sale right through to the 31st of December. Won't really help anyone in OZ as I don't think many on this forum are in Japan, but for future reference, we are alive and well (so far) and hope to see you here when travel resumes. For our retail sale, happy to post if anyone interested. If you are in Japan, open by appointment only with Covid safe compliance. Contact me by PM for a stock list or to arrange a visit.
