Australia Day Delivers Perfect Powder Conditions

Yet Another perfect day in Hakuba.  Crisp clear skys and fresh silky lines all day.  What bliss!!!

Another SICK day in Hakuba

Well…I’m happy to report that the powder is still cranking in Hakuba. Another foot or so of fresh to fill in the tracks from the day before and some great visibility in the trees. Dropped some lines with Suzi who snapped away with her new toy – a telephoto lens.

Wow! we just had the biggest snowfall Hakuba has seen in the past 4 years.

We had 5 metres in two weeks and a lot more to come
