So I've seen the trailers for the latest and greatest snowboarding movies, the adverts for this season's new gear, a first tracks video from Whistler Blackcomb and a couple of short movies at the Yokohama showing of the Banff Mountain Film Festival, but I've yet to feel to the urges that I normally get around this time of the year to hit the white stuff. In short, my winter stoke has gone for a burton! :sadface: Maybe it's the unseasonably warm weather we're experiencing or the lack of snow on Fujisan but something's up! Hell, the other weekend I even passed up the opportunity to check out the Kanda/Ochanomizu snowboard shops and went to a cafe instead! So if anyone has seen my stoke or has any suggestions as to where I might find it, could they please get in touch asap! :(
Playing in the trees on a Prior Khyber, with Ride Contrabands & Salomon Synapse wides! :D

Just Think Mt Granview.

It's the heat.
My thoughts haven't turned to winter yet, seems ages off.

Just 8 days until Snowtown Yeti opens.

If that doesn't get your stoke going, I don't know what will. :wakaranai:

Then there's Sayama opening on the 25th. You haven't made it there yet, right?

Still in Tokyo, sweating away here.
Hasn't the typhoon gone now?
Doesn't feel like autumns here, never mind run up to winter.

Wax your board/skis.

It always gets me excited packing my board bag in preparation for heading in the direction of snow.
In fact I have left the boys new boards on display in the lounge - makes me smile every time I walk past.

The forecast looks like snow on Fuji next week fwiw. I love autumn so I'm in no hurry myself.

I bought some new skiboots in 33 degree Bris-Vegas heat yesterday

I felt a stoke stirring after that.

Me too.

In fact, I hope autumn is long and time slows down.

(Obviously I don't want a late start to winter).

I bet Saiyama and Yeti are having 'issues' making snow with the heat we have been having.
