It is that time of year again. We had a good snow related thread going on last season so I thought I would start it up for this year.
In Japan, some of the Honshu snow areas like Nagano, Niigata and Yamagata have had the first real winter storms of the season, some big dumps and barren looking ski hills turned white over night on the webcams I check while I should be working.
I have moved from Niigata where I had a few hills close by to Tokyo where I can only carve concrete. Now, hitting the mountains requires a lot more expenditure of effort, time and money. Hopefully talking shit about snow on here with other swellnetters will help me get some stoke and motivate me to get on those early morning buses and trains to head to the hills. I am hoping to get my first lines in about 2 weeks.
Amazing eh'? Saw it on the news last night.
Craig, impressed. You're on to it.
Yeah insane, how do they carve that out?? Need some massive machinery for that.
Start at the top and work down?
Whenever I see those pictures I always wonder what happens when it starts to melt... Wouldn't it be super dangerous? Walls collapsing etc....?
Yeah I wonder that as well, would be super dangerous?
I think the roads are heated, other skifields in nippon use thermal springs piped in the roads.
This kid is the Japanese Shaun White.
His name means snow or maybe brave.
Thanks Zen that was off the hook.
Sending this one to Welly
