Steve Lee Powder Snowfaris 2015-16 Season Wrap Up

"Firstly I'd personally like to thank you for joining our Hakuba trips over the last couple of seasons.  It has been fun to host you all, showing you the great riding available in Hakuba and hopefully getting some of your best days on snow.  After all, that's what we strive for! 

We also enjoy introducing you to our favorite eateries and watering holes around town, and some great news... there's a bunch more opening up next season, so more to explore and enjoy!

It's not been long since we wound up this past season, kicking off pre christmas and finally hanging up the boards mid April. Certainly it was not a big snow year (locals say the lowest in 80 years), peaking at the 5-6m mark.  Can I say, most resorts would be ecstatic with that, but it was about half the annual snowfall Hakuba is accustomed to.  However, in my opinion quality wise, it was as good as ever.  Resort riding was not great early Jan, and the lines... whoooo, wopping at times.  That made our job all the more challenging, but also rewarding when our guests got the goods.  And I think they did.  From Mid Jan the snow pack started to fill in and riding was super fun.  Resort tree skiing was probably the one area that didn't really get going till late Feb, it was just too twiggy, hence my seasons catch cry, "there's more bush than a Japanese onsen".  You know what I mean!

 Well, now it's time to look forward to the 2016-17 winter and the big question is, are you in again?

We look forward to you joining us once again for all the fun the Hakuba valley provides".  

Cheers Steve Lee
