Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

Good phrase, and think it was around 5k for the week before flights etc

I didn't get any FOMO as it was so late in the year plus I was down in Spain for just over four weeks and that was cheaper!


Same, not Spain though.

Did the month of May in Hokkaido for way less than 5k, including flights.

20 April to 20 May touring round Hokkaido combining resort accessed side/backcountry and touring with sightseeing is highly recommended.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Svalbard looks like an incredible trip....
And surprisingly easy to get to on a scheduled flight from Oslo to Longyearbyen.
The traditional mining industry is in decline - so Svalbard probably going to become more and more tourist focused in future?

However, additional challenge for ski tourers :
a) Unlike Lyngen you probably do need a boat to get to the skiing.
b) Polar bears! Need a gun license and polar bear deterrents to leave the main town.

Both of those factors mean you probably need to join a guided group.
Therefore prices aren't cheap - but for a once in lifetime experience it looks pretty cool to me ?
Bruce Goodlad runs trips up there, his photos (of skiing and wildlife) look amazing.
