Japanese tackle store?
Run out of condoms?


I won't have much time in Tokyo, unless I pass one on the way to something else it's unlikely.

I've decided to turn my old powder board into a splitboard.
Going to get it water jet cut, if possible.

Didn't split the board.

Arrived in Iiyama tonight, there's a foot of fresh.
Head up to Madarao tomorrow, hopefully my board will be waiting there for me. The hotel said they won't be able to pick us up because there'll be too much snow.

One warm day and one powder day so far.
About 40cm last night and another 10cm or so throughout the day. Was waist deep on some runs, and thigh deep in the trees.
Been taking it pretty easy as I've still got another 10 days.

8:30 to 4:30 with a half hour for lunch. No pauses, ride straight to the lift.

Unless I'm with Mrs Boo or the Boolings, then there's much faff. Same hours, but many stops and about 5-6 hours of riding.

A mate is in Japan skiing at the moment. No shortage of snow, he reckons.

Had 5 days riding at Madarao and Tangram.
2 were epic, thigh to waist deep blower pow.
One was warm and a bit slushy, one was whiteout, one was bluebird with no new snow so I spent it on the groomers.

Packed the wife and kids of to the airport, now I'm getting a train to northern Honshu for a week-long road trip around a few resort's.
Will be warm and rainy to start, then windy with lots of snow.

In the early stages of organising next winter. Probably a border town above 1800m in an expansive underutilised area.
