    Arriving Hakuba Jan 31 and flying out of Tokyo Feb 10 (unless I get snowed in ;)). I’ll be kicking things off in Hakuba for the first few days then I’ll head wherever is looking snowiest.

    I’m sorted for accom for the first few days but I’d love to get recommendations on places to stay where other core riders stay, especially those keen on BC. My buddy pulled the pin on this trip so I’m seeking riding partners. This is only my second Japan trip but I’ll arrive fully equipped with a split setup, keen to explore . Cheers

    For 10 days, I’d stick with just Hakuba. So much BC options. Do you have a car?

    I haven’t booked yet but I think I will. I didn’t hate the valley’s bus system last trip but I’m keen to be more mobile.

    I did 9 days in Hakuba last winter so considering heading wider to Myoko/Madarao or Nozawa. Depends a lot on snow.
