Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

The only negative - not enough sushi :) I am already planing (ie dreaming off) my next trip and with the impossibility to predict snow I will from now on plan the trip according to best onsens/reataurants. These left me with big smiles. And people are so lovely.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@justabod, Baggage is always included, two pieces of 23kg, one of which could be a skibag. It is not intra-European flights or ryanair/easyjet where you pay in addition. Flew with ANA, Finnair and JAL and always the same baggage rules. I fit everything into one skibag and take my bootsbag as a carryon. This is for 2-2.5 weeks on both occasions.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Howling at Furano Saw some folks taking a taxi to Kamui Links. It is 50 km away from Furano but you never know, winds might not be as strong over there

@Rookiescot, potentially doing them up to tight. The bottom two buckles you should be able to close with one finger. If it takes more effort to close it could make it tight and restrict blood flow causing the cold. If you have had hire boots before the fit probably wasn't as snug. ....and little finger, at that ie. just enough tension to hold the bottom buckles closed. +1 If the rest of your body is warm it does potentially suggest restricted blood flow to your toes. Those bottom buckles are simply to keep the boot closed and watertight, they arn't meant to be cranked down tight crushing the top of your foot. But sure the shop/person that sold new boots had all this explained to the OP?

The ruler that Kiroro have a webcam pointed at has been buried overnight. That means 35cm+ at resort level. Looks like there was quite a localised dump in the Yoichi / Otaru / Mt. Yoichi area! Akaigawa in between Yoichi and Mt. Yoichi had 40cm in the last 12 hours, at only 148m asl. 15cm through the day yesterday at Kiroro More than enough to go round Snow was heaviest around Kiroro this morning with big fat flakes. Kiroro must be a magnet for snow
You know it makes sense.

national day of Japan, expected to be busy. Driving through Kiroro it was dumping but traffic was so heavy towards Kiroro so gambled drove to Asari instead. What a lovely little resort! It was snowing still 9am, boot deep in trees and next to pistes. Imagine what it would be like on a quieter day. Possibly not the place for pros, but nice anyway.

@musehead, thanks a lot for this, much appreciated! If pros could advise of how to solve the backseating dilema. Pictures taken during cat ski trip (Weiss Cat Ski) revealed the unpleasant truth. I thought I was only slightly guilty, but the horror of the pictures ....

Local news is reporting that -36°C was recorded near Asahikawa this morning, the coldest temperature for 19 years. There will be a dramatic warmup to about +7°C by Thursday this week. Quite a difference!! Skied Asari today, near Otaru. Found some good lines on soft snow in the trees. Not many other people skiing off-piste. Snow skied a bit heavy, similar to Pippu the other day. Planning to head to Asari on Tue (wind should pick up so lower resort should be better). Any hints for nice lines? Head straight to the top lift?

Thank you guys. Last question, if I were to go to Solutions4Feet would I save a significant amount of money if I were to go in June rather than February? Wrong approach. Your first priority is to have a properly fitting pair of boots. It could happen that the last pair is the one for you. But you will never know until you go there.

I have quite often seen local trains running off peak running with just two or three passengers in them. TBF if trains were running at peak times only then there would be people who wanted to return at non peak times waiting for hours. Why is this topic in The Piste section? Local eurostar? Local trains and eurostar are different animals

It's fine for beginners, plenty of blue runs and some good wide reds to get them on at the end of the week :D Make sure to have lunch at Maison Vieille! Bar Roma is pretty much the only "apres" bar in town and is pretty decent. The owner is something of a character Maison Vieille - superb. Also a mountain hut in summer for hikers that do TMB. The owner is super nice (we drank his Barolo when started chatting when I stoped there on my TMB a few years ago). Lunch was great a couple of times I ate there during skiing period as well but with winter season rush the owner indeed showed some character :)

@Mandh, it will be fine, do not worry. Just ask your instructor on where to stay. Central mid mountain area will be just fine.

We had an excellent private international mountain guide in Gressoney 2 years ago. filippo Livorno. Excellent rates and excellent character. He knew all the chit chat about the liftees which made good fun. Occasional hand brake turns in the family berlingo And to round it all off incredibly patient and not afraid to tell you where you can go with out him in reasonable safety http://summitguides.org/en/about/ +1 for summit guides. Was skiing with Paolo, superb!

@areynolds10, you've already done a shell check and ascertained that you've got a 25mm gap which is too much for a performance fit. You asked for advice but seem keen on ignoring it :roll: so the usual human behaviour, no? I guess as most of time people want confirmation, not the actual advice :) to the OP - you are making an expensive mistake if not following a good free advice, but hey, it is your money :sH:
