Hachi Kogen review by Tom Stang
Snow was good, but a couple of chairs were still closed as of December 26th, including the new one that connects it to Hachikita! Bummer Dude! When will that chair open?? It is important to have all the options open!

Oh yeah, found some great snow there that day! And it appears to have dropped 20cm more since then! Let the good times role
