Greetings from the sunny autumn village of Hakuba. We are happy to see the fall colours slowly working their way down the mountains. The rice fields are yellow are being harvested and soon the apples of the Shinshu area will be ready too!

As the cooler temperatures being to flow in from the north, the local riders and skiers inevitably begin to salivate at the thought of the first snowfall. An undocumented source even mentioned in passing that Tateyama had received a snowfall last week!

We have been enjoying the nice fall days here by hiking and camping as well. At 2400m the night time temperatures fell to just above freezing so....it is not far off until we can expect to see some nice frosty dusting atop the peaks surrounding Hakuba. We will drop the info when that comes!!

In preparation for the coming EPIC (collective positive thinking folks) winter, rock out the lastest skiing DVD's, strap on your weapons in your living room and imagine training for those sick powder days we will be having. A little physical leg training exercises might be beneficial as well, my personal favorite (chair to fridge, beer, chair ) 6 sets of multiple repetitions. Running, weight lifting and biking also work I hear.

Until Ular the Norse God of Snow drops his white bombs we will pray and wait diligently for his arctic blessings! Keep it cool!
