Skiers and Snowboarders!

Skiers and Snowboarders!

I love skiing and snowboarding!!
I would be on mountains every weekend from Dec till May.
If you want to ski or snowboard, please ask me! I would have lots of English informations about skiing in Japan.
These days, skiers and snowboarders are decreasing in Japan. But, we don't have to wait to take lifts anymore.

I guess people are thinking about global warming. But, guess what!? On tops of Hakuba mountains in Nagano and Mt.Naeba got caps of snow already on 27 and 27 Sep. It is about 1 month earlier than normal year.

Please come back to the white slopes!!

PS, I am interested in cycling and kayaking in summer.

All the best,
Gadgetskier

Hello!

Im Alex, a newbie CSer.

I haven't tried snowboarding here yet and I don't know much about good slopes to hit during the season. I tried surfing the net for information but most of the details are in Japanese, ouch!

Luckily, a friend of mine invited me to Hakuba for a snowboarding trip this coming weekend, January 10. I'm quite excited already :D

Perhaps I can tag along sometime with your snowboarding adventures :D

Wow, thanks! :D

That was a really cool site. I'll check out the details later.

If my weekends are free, I'd surely love to go to ski trips. Thanks a lot!
