Welcome to Japow!

It’s official, the season has started and the lifts are open in Hakuba for the 2014/15 season! Snow has been falling pretty consistently for the past week and we’ve managed to enjoy two beautiful days of riding in one of Japan’s favourite ski resorts.

We’ve been getting used to the different snow conditions and various quirks of the Japanese Alps and have enjoyed our first taste of mountain life outside Europe. The snow has been impressive so far and it looks like there’s plenty more to come (Hakuba has an average 11m snowfall per year). Here’s to a great season – Kanpai!
