Great day compliments of the Snowjapan giveaway!!!
This is a good place to visit for all kinds of skiers/boarders. Has a little something for everyone.

For me, the tree runs on the far left (looking up the mntn) are the best. Lots of fresh pow and pretty much just my friends and I going in.

It was a holiday weekend, so more people than usual.

Still easy enough to find freshies if you know where to look! Thanks again Snowjapan!
