I only came to Japan in October last year and I had never been skiing. Now I have had 6 days out skiing, so coming here was what started me!

Count me in as one of the people who started when they came to Japan. But that was a long time ago, I think I have had 23 seasons here now. An old hand.

My father worker in Sugadaira when he was younger for the town which is I think still owner of the resort, so he took me there a lot on weekends. That's how I got started, still really like going back there.

College time went on a trip to Banff, is what got me started.
Never looked back.

I skied once way back on a family trip. Somehow didn't appreciate it.

Took up boarding when I came to Japan 3 seasons ago.

First time family holiday in Whistler.
After that at college with a bunch of buddies, had to be the wildest few weeks of my life.
