Nothing like 70cm of Fresh Powder to start off the New Year and to kick off the First Official Japow Tour. Takanori & Junichi were my first guest of the Season. Amazing day and snow at Hakkoda for this time of year. Pretty good coverage all over the front side of the Mountain with a 200cm base. We did not venture off the back side as there where massive amounts of large tour groups headed in that direction. I can never quite figure out why people want to ride in the backcountry with 50 plus of your closes friends. I'll stick the rule that 5 is too many. In gearing up at the car I was too excited to get some freshies that I forgot my camera, typical I know. So here are a few shot from my Iphone & Instagram.
Thanks again to Takanori and Junichi! "think Japow"
