  • Event Japan Snow Season 13/14

    Hi All,

    Not really an event but more of and FYI for those hitting up Japan for the up and coming snow season. I’m leaving WA for a while and will be in Japan working for the season at a bar in Hakuba called Bike Bar (Yes motorcycle related).

    If anyone is heading across to Japan and wants to head out boarding or skiing or just to be shown the sites around down or come around for a beer hit me up!

    I’ll be in Japan from the 13th of December through to early March and if all goes well should have my own car to tour round Hakuba/Nagano area in.

              I'm staying at happo also, so sounds like it's too far. Doesn't help that the place I'm staying has a bar and happy hour

                  Bastard... Jealous!
                  Ill get over there one day, probably a few years away though.

                  Keep an eye out for a Greg Murray, runs a freestyle snowboard 'training camp' type thing for 8 odd weeks over there and pretty sure that was in Hakuba. Good bloke. Dude can board too!

                  Enjoy yourselves!

                    Hi Desmo

                    Optic: yeah def hit you up. We likely will hit up Goryu itself as well so we could rock in for a bit of apre ski. If you have a car we'd love some help getting over to Cortina if you know what I mean

                      Bastards! Best powder I have ever seen at hakuba! Some great local food to be had around the area. I didn't make it over to cortina as the snow was just so good at happo. Enjoy!
                      Just do it. Seriously, if you look up the standing rules of PSB it goes something like this.

                      1. Dont be a dick
                      2. Desmo is allowed to be a dick (sometimes)
                      3. Buy the one with the most Duke
                      4. Dont ask about fixing the search function.
                      etc etc..

                        There is a free bus service around all the mountains there. Somewhat infrequent and not always on time, but it is easy enough to get around. I pretty much boarded a different mountain each day. Get out to Cortina on a blue bird day. Other than awesome powder, there is something magical about seeing the ocean in the distance as you arrive at the top of the mountain on the chair lift.

                        In Happo, go for dinner and drinks at Uncle Steve's one night. Great mexican, great tequilas and a vast selection of hot sauces. Fun times ensured.

                          In Hakuba now and it's dumped about 1mtr of snow in the past 48 hours with more due over the next few days.

                          Great start to the season!

                              Should have my car sorted in the next few weeks, looking forward to touring some of the other mountains around the place!
