Takadaodake: Japow Tour

Takadaodake sits 1552 meters high.  The fastest way to access this beast is by hiking for up to 3 hours from Yachi Onsen.  Its a south facing slope so she gets lots of sun and is prefect for early spring time riding. This is not a hike for the weak. We had blue sky all morning and then clouds rolled in just as we left the peak. Perfect timing to a prefect day. The open bowl was a little firm but the lower section had a great backside lip to slash. Ready for summer time surfing.

On a side note: I broke my snowshoes half way up the face and will be split-boarding for the remainder of the season.  Bummed but it will force me to ride the split more.  Heres to more Backcountry Adventures.
