    Not too early this one but great memories with good mates on this trip. This is the first cable car up Asahidake on the deepest day ever in 2007/08. There would have been twenty people skiing the whole mountain that day. Might be some familiar faces for a few in this bunch.

    @Doonks this photo was taken 5 years before Backstreet Boys formed. So you can see where their inspiration came from.
