Crash Time

Put together a crash, with a win at the end, compilation video. Sadly wasn’t filming when I had my worst crash and hung basically upside down until Dave and Simon could come help get my skis off the tree they were snagged around.

Aussie last day in Niseko

Final day was bluebird with a foot of powder on top the peak. We hit some epic lines on a day we didn’t expect anything and revisited a couple of old favorites before a perfect corn and powder run back through no mans’ land to the lodge. Then dinner at A-Bu-Cha for one of the biggest best and most expensive of the trip.

Shiribetsu Touring

Our last day was spent touring up Shiribetsu for a couple of runs. 2hrs and 45min of hiking for 1min40sec of skiing, the usual trade-off for touring. It was fantastic, great views and snow. The 2nd run was a great way to end the trip.

Niseko Resort

It is way busier than two years ago, had to get an early start and head straight to the peak just to get some fresh turns in before everything was skied out. Also did one run back at Moiwa. Last run of the day was on the backside of the mountain straight down to the onsen then a BD employee came to pick us up.

Sadly lost Yuya just as we got to Niseko as he was needed on another multi-day tour. On top of that Hayden departed after skiing today for the same reason. They’re two of the three Japanese speaking guides so understandable needed when tours to go where English isn’t that prevalent.

Thankfully Yuya found us before the onsen.

Niseko midday

Had a few good runs but it’s pretty tracked out since hasn’t snowed in a while. Going to hike to the peak again after lunch then do a run down to an Onsen.
