Im on a 6 day a week schedule, so trips any further than that are... unlikely. Late season i might try and cash in 5 of my vacation days though giving me 7 or 8 days in Japan. Probably going hakuba way. I feel ive always just sort of never done enough hakuba.Entirely contingent on cashflow though. Hope to give some reviews of stuff up gangwon way before the olympics :)

Hoping to hit Fantasy Island towards the end of next week.

My longtime student and mate Ian has got a full-time gig at Kiroro running ski ops amongst other things.

Nerys & I are doing branding and marketing for the resort, so I'll be living and spending most of my time there this winter.

Road tripping to central Hokkaido in December with Nerys to check out Furano, Kamui, Sahoro, Tomamu, Asahidake and Mt Racey.

And down to Hakkoda too hopefully.

Can't wait :)

Will be predominantly at the K Pass hills. Teine and Racey mostly. Rustsu a good few times (plus a 3 day stay over Christmas), and Nakayama for spring park sessions. Plus, like Tubby, Kiroro and Kokusai are on the list. The odd trip to Asahikawa thrown in the mix for Kamui, Furano and the Daisetsuzan ropeways plus backcountry. My last winter in Hokkaido, I hope to make the most of it!

Seemore, our paths will cross at Rusutsu at Christmas and Teine at New Year. Hope to run in to you (not literally!)

Give us a shout if you're heading to Racey! (Might not be amazing in December as it tends to take a bit longer to get going there, but it's always a fun day at Yubari!)

Other than Mt Granview of course...

At least once at the locals - more/most times at Maiko - and further afield I hope to go to Kawaba, Hakuba, Myoko and Sugadaira this season. Perhaps Zao.

Probably mostly Kawaba with some White World Oze Iwakura, Houdaigi and Kagura mixed in. Might check out a few Yuzawa / Muikamachi skijos I haven't been to (Maybe Maiko , Hakkaisan, Iwappara and or Gala) Might also make a trip into Nagano to go to either Hakuba, Nozawa or the elusive Charmant Hiuchi depending on how much free time I have. Might also just get on the Tenjin Gondola now to ensure I'm up there by the end of winter.

I'm hoping to be in Hakuba for the inter holiday period. This will be the first time the little one will be on a board. Fingers crossed that she is going to like it!
