We thought long about putting that one up after what happened in Japan, but we decided that everybody should know that Japanese pow pow is the best and nothing has changed. If you ever have the chance to go to Japan for snowboarding...DO IT. We will definitely travel to Hokkaido again!
In early March, six of us went to Niseko for a 6-day "post-season-getting-some-real-snow trip" and it was epic! Four out of six days it DUMPED and the other 2 days it snowed a bit as well. Most of the riders in the crew had never have been in Japan let alone ridden powder so it was a blast.
