Ok, so to be fair, I didn't get to Zao on the best terms. It had been raining here the day before I arrived, and I busted my knee earlier in the trip, so this is going to be more of a "town" review of sorts.
First of all, big thanks to the SJ crew for the free ticket. Even though I wasn't able to use it for snowboarding as intended, I was able to use it to see the snow
Ok, so this won't be the best review. Reason being that I damaged my knee 2 days before getting to Yuzawa and wasn't able to go boarding, but having snowboarded here for the last 2 years, I think I'm qualified to write a review.
First off, big thanks to the SJ team for the free tickets. As expected, they were waiting for me at my hotel when I arrived. I wish I could have used them properly.
