Thanks everyone for your suggestions! :thumbsup: In preparation for visits to the Golden Triangle resorts (Granview, Yeti & Sayama), I've decided to follow Mambear's advice and the following video lesson, and wax my board this weekend! :D

Ooh, we have a new category? "Golden Triangle."

Niseko.
Hakuba.
Golden Triangle.

Has a ring to it!

Surely that is all subsumed under Niseko?
(Niseko Ski Area. Like Hakuba Ski Area.)

Well Mick Rich I am amazed and disgusted that you would portray a member of the opposite sex in such degrading and laviscious way!!

Sorry about that - got a bit over-excited by the thought of finding my stoke!! PS pm on its way!
