Hey LPLs,

I’m going to use this blog to document our trip to Japan. Here’s a brief run-down on the tour:

19/12 to 25/12 – Al, Cath & Mitch in Kyoto

Not a lot of snow action likely, but maybe some Geisha-girls, lots of temples, & funny engrish signs.

24/12 10/1 – Al, Cath, Suzanne & Brett in Niseko

Expect dump reports, secret powder runs, snow-roos, & onsen shenanigans.
More info on Niseko can be found here

19/12 to 25/12 – Al, Cath, Mitch & Melanie in Hakkouda

Aomori Powder Mecca… the main aim here will be not losing anybody in the trees..
More info on Hakkouda can be found here

The Japanese season is off to quite a late start… Hopefully that means that the incoming weather will be extra-strong & sort the hills out before we get there… The mainland has been getting a lashing since yesterday, & Niseko is about to cop it big-time.

Here comes Huey-san!
