You may sense that we were entranced
We fly Air NZ and therefore miss out on JAL's domestic gaijin fares restricted to One World.
(Where as ANA charges a little more and is open to all gaijin but only fly to Kagoshima) (as do Jetstar)
So anyway when you are casting your askance eye around at all your fellow travellers in the lift queues at Hirafu and Hakuba and Myoko and Nozawa, think about it.
The winters are mild and JAL fly from Osaka direct, on occasion.
Hopefully, if the wind is out of the Northwest, off China and Korea all the rain will drain our collective smog away.
“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”
Niseko Avalanche Report:
No new snow and the out of bounds area is tracked out
Annupuri Gate 7 will open today. Follow the instruction and enter “Aee-Sawa” from the gate. However the area is already ruined thanks to all the violators. Bushes are still thick in the out of bounds area and tricky to come back in. Beware of collisions, slipdrops and falling into stream holes.
There are more people entering the strictly off-limits areas of Yu no sawa and Haru no Taki to seek fresh lines. We strongly demand everyone to acknowledge the gist of the Niseko Rules and respect them. The freedom to ride out of bounds is only protected by having the Rules in place. Violators will be severely punished. Any ropes shall not be crossed.
Oh you mean the last one.
Only MG has been told that.
There were clues in the contemporary thread.
We just fluked it.
Story of small fields.
Going back thereabouts this year, but with few expectations.
Just hire a car with 4wd and snow tires and drive. Although I've been negative about Hakuba over the years, some guys there encouraged me to do so.
It was kind of radical back then!
Thanks for that, it has made our Japanese experience so so much better.
Oh if you don't score 4wd, just relax, you probably don't need it.
When all is said and done
How important is the drop knee turn?
We had the privilege of running into Midget Farrelly at Tamarin Bay quite a while ago.He was a very nice guy.
Surf was flat.
We'd go back to Batu Karas, but it was so polluted.
Oh crap, the captured photons have addled my mind,or is it the other way around, this is a Japanese thread , right?
I was reading the latest Surfer magazine at the library at lunchtime.
Well, I only read the editorial and looked at all the pics..
The editor (my failed efforts to hijack these may mean you may have to read this in your own library) made some pretty pointed comments about social media, particularly in regard to the display of visual content, I would have to agree with.
