    Hello

    I will be staying in Niseko for the whole month of January (3-25 January) with my 13 years old son.

    For the days when my son will be taking his skiing lessons, I am looking for skiing buddies. I am Sydney based 53 years old fit expert skier (ski 5+ more weeks per year) and this will be my third trip to Niseko so I know the area relatively well but not too keen to get outside of the gates by myself. So if you want to join me.

    Also keen to go to the neighbouring resorts (Kiroro, Rusutsu) for a day. So we can share the cost of transport etc...

    Potentially my snowboarding partner while I’m on my course, but he is off to Austria for 10 days in the middle of Jan, and we have lower skilled friends over prior to that. He may want to get out the gates and leave the others to the piste from time to time though. Stay in touch.

    Adult kids need not apply LOL

    Meet and greet when @schaton gets in?
    It’s only 2 days after me.
    Promise I won’t lead the group astray with excessive consumption.
