Somewhere german-speaking, no doubt

No! High altitude German speaking is either glaciers or expensive or spatially limited. We'll be 1km from a border with a town on each side so I'd better brush up on two languages. For a month.

Had some wild weather, an icy day at a resort full of CNY tourists yesterday and an amazing day today in northern Honshu.

Had a great second week.
5 resorts, lots of snow.
A couple of the best powder runs I've had, and I've been pretty lucky in the past.

Definitely recommend having a car, despite having to dig it out and clear the snow off it a few times.

There's no shortage of snow where my mate is skiing in Japan, that's going by the photo taken from his room today.

5 different resorts in one week, with kids? Sounds certifiable boo.

Any standouts? Long uninterrupted fall line? Relaxed patrol?

I'll email you.
Some are fairly under the radar, loofy wouldn't be happy for me to blow them up.

You'd also greatly benefit from speaking some Nihongo for some of them.

Nope, haven't been.
There's good snow in Iran too.

And my Serbian mate was telling me about his trip to Bosnia. Only 9 Euros for a day pass, but they have unexploded land mines and the occasional bear attack.
