    My park days are pretty much dead. They do keep the park open though

    I'm going to the the specialist who did my knee surgery in a couple of weeks to see if my park days are done and if i need another op, i'd love to be able to keep skiing half pipe.

    The problem is good park days are great BC days most of the time. With age I have preferred skiing lines that are new.

    Japan 2011- 2012 Trip Plans/Thoughts/Reviews Thread

    Been researching a bit more info for the forthcoming trip and although I have seen the place mention in this thread numerous times I had never given any thought to doing a day trip over to Kiroro until today, now i think back and seem to remember GN and other post TR on the place. A bit of a quick search on the web and it looks quite achievable to hire a car and head over there for the day.

    Seeing as this thread is so long, i may have missed the relevant info on Kiroro but is it similar in that it gets snow in the same weather patens as Niseko? I know that people have mention that Rusutsu sometimes can get snow when Niseko doesn't even thought its only a short distance away.

    Any advice on Kiroro welcome.
